Natco Credit Union’s Community Empowerment Center is national award winner

RICHMOND, ID (December 4, 2014) CUNA (Credit Union National Association) announced that Natco Credit Union was selected as the first place national winner of the Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Community Service Award in the asset size of $50 million to $100 million.

“Each year, credit unions across Indiana have the opportunity to compete with other credit unions in their asset category for the Dora Maxwell award,” explained CEO Cindy Duke. “This year, we submitted an entry based on the Natco Community Empowerment Center (NCEC) and all of the work being done through the center. The main focus of the NCEC has always been our community and creating programs that will help members of the community make improvements in their lives and become self-sustaining. The NCEC serves as a “one stop shop”, providing no-cost programs and services that assist individuals and families in our community to move from poverty to self-sustainability.”

On October 17, Natco Credit Union was recognized as a first place state winner. The winning entry was forwarded to CUNA for the national competition. As the first place national winner, the credit union will be recognized at a special event in Washington, D.C. in March.
