The Dora Maxwell Award
Recognizing social responsibility
The Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Community Service Award recognizes the charitable work and external programs of credit unions that benefit local communities, including fundraising and volunteering.
Credit unions could receive an award for involvement in almost any kind of activity that helps other people or strengthens the structure of a community. This might 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, et cetera.
