DENVER (10/14/15)--Six credit unions received the Mountain West Credit Union Foundation’s annual credit union awards last month during the foundation’s eighth annual Star Gala. Also a big winner on the night was the foundation itself, which raised $38,000 during the event to support its work.
The foundation hosts the event each year to honor outstanding credit unions and professionals within the region’s movement. The awards were presented to:
“These award winners truly embody the credit union philosophy,” said Dan Santangelo, foundation executive director. “This program reminds us of the importance of keeping the founding principles of credit unions first and foremost in our priorities. The individuals and credit unions receiving these awards truly make a difference in their communities, and in the lives of their members. It’s why we do what we do.”
The funds raised at the gala will support foundation programs offered to credit unions served by the Mountain West Credit Union Association, which represents credit unions in Arizona, Colorado and Wyoming.
