Warren Morrow Hispanic Growth Fund Established

Warren Morrow

Iowa-based Coopera, in partnership with the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), has announced the development of a grant fund in honor of the late Warren Morrow, credit union advocate and Coopera founder. The Warren Morrow Hispanic Growth Fund, established through the National Credit Union Foundation will help credit unions with less than $500 million in assets start or enhance a Hispanic growth program.

“Warren was a visionary in the credit union industry who saw immense potential for growth for those cooperatives that focused strategically on serving the largest, fastest-growing and youngest community in the United States,” said Miriam De Dios, CEO of Coopera. “To carry on his legacy, this fund supports what Warren believed deeply – that credit unions were the avenue to providing dignified financial services to Hispanics.”

The Cornerstone Credit Union League collaborated with Coopera many years ago to revamp its Juntos Avanzamos, or Together we Advance initiative. Cornerstone staff and its International Relationship Committee worked with Coopera to re-design the Juntos Avanzamos logo, as well as the application.

Donations to the fund can be made anytime by visiting http://tinyurl.com/morrowdonation.
