Dora Maxwell Award Honors Strong Community Involvement
Thursday, May 14, 2015 6:25 AM

The Cornerstone Credit Union League and the Credit Union National Association are pleased to sponsor the Dora Maxwell Award for social responsibility and community service within the community. Could you be a good candidate for this award?

Dora Maxwell was an early credit union pioneer, and was one of the original signers of CUNA's constitutions at Estes Park in Colorado. She worked as an organizer for the movement's trade association and held numerous volunteer positions at the local and national level. In addition to organizing hundreds of credit unions, she developed volunteer organizer clubs and worked with organizations on behalf of the poor.

Credit unions could receive the award for involvement in almost any kind of activity that helps other people or strengthens the structure of a community. This may include raising funds for charity, educational activities, or community involvement projects, such as a volunteer fair, building low-income housing, or loaning employees a few hours a week to work in hospitals, retirement homes, schools, etc.
