The Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Recognition Program was established to encourage credit union and chapter involvement in community projects and activities. Community involvement can enhance your credit union’s image and is a great opportunity to give something back to the community.

Credit unions compete with others in their asset category for the Dora Maxwell award. First-place winners at the state level advance to the national competition, where they vie with credit unions of similar size throughout the country.

This award is named after Dora Maxwell, a credit union pioneer who worked with numerous organizations to improve the living standards of the poor and needy.

Winners are announced during the Chairman's Awards Banquet at the League's annual convention.  First-place winners are forwarded to CUNA for the national competition.

The following information should answer any questions you have about these awards programs. If you need additional help, call the Communications Department.

What is the Dora Maxwell Award? How does it work?
Your credit union or chapter can participate in a wide variety of community outreach activities. Take a look at your community and assess its needs. They might include fund raising for charity, making classroom presentations, sponsoring community activities, or loaning employees for a few hours a week to work in hospitals, retirement homes or shelters. You can make a difference in your community. Get involved, and then enter the Dora Maxwell award program. As you document your activities, here are some things to keep in mind:

  1. What were the goals of your project and how did they show social concern for the community?
  2. How did the project support the needs of the community?
  3. Define the project's target audience(s), including who got involved and who benefited from the project.
  4. What strategies were used to reach the project's goal?
  5. How were the project's promotional materials targeted to the intended audience(s) and how did they communicate the project's goals?
  6. How is this project unique? How does it demonstrate extraordinary effort and devotion of time and organization by the credit union?
  7. Please describe the measurable or defined results the project achieved.

The Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Recognition Award recognizes credit unions for external activities within the community.

Sample Dora Maxwell Award activities include, but are not limited to:

  • Helping solve core community problems, such as housing, transportation, hunger, or literacy.
  • Food, clothing, or school supply drives for the needy.
  • Raising money on behalf of charitable organizations, such as the United Way or Credit Unions for Kids®.
  • Helping an organization or agency with events or projects, such as coaching a Special Olympics team.
  • Tutoring or reading to students at a local school.
  • Sponsoring a community volunteer of the year award.

Commonly Asked Questions

Q: Who was Dora Maxwell?
A: Dora Maxwell was an early credit union pioneer. One of the original signers of CUNA's constitution at Estes Park, Colorado, she worked as an organizer for the movement's trade association (then called the Credit Union National Extension Bureau) 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.

Q: What time period do the award entries cover?
A: Leagues determine any qualifying time frames. In general, entries should cover the previous year's activities, but there are no exact deadlines prescribed. A good rule of thumb is that entries submitted by the deadline should cover activities that took place between the submission date and the same date during the previous year.

Q: What's the difference between the Louise Herring Award and the Dora Maxwell Award?
A: The Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Recognition Award is given to a credit union or chapter for its social responsibility projects within the community. The award is given for external activities. The Louise Herring Award for Philosophy in Action is given to a credit union for its practical application of credit union philosophy within the actual operation of the credit union. It is awarded for internal programs and services.

Q: Can a credit union enter both competitions?
A: Yes. Just be sure to clearly define which program the credit union is entering and how the activities submitted meet the program guidelines.

Q: Can a credit union enter the same entry in both competitions?
A: No. Because each program has different objectives and requirements, entries should be tailored to match the defined goals of the particular competition.

Q: Can a credit union submit the same entry to more than one-league for state-level judging?
A: No. A credit union's entry may only be submitted to one league, even if the credit union pays dues in more than one state.

Q. Can a credit union submit more than one entry in either competition?
A. Generally, a credit union should submit only one entry per competition. Each entry can list the number of projects conducted in the timeframe established by the League, but the credit union must select one project that best exemplifies the criteria for each award. The questions on the entry form must be completed detailing the one project that was selected.

Q: Can members of a chapter submit their credit union's activities that were conducted as part of a Chapter?
A: No. Chapter's entries are judged based on their collective activities, i.e., what was accomplished as a group, not on individual efforts.

Q: Can chapters enter the Louise Herring Award for Philosophy in Action competition?
A: No. The Louise Herring Award for Philosophy in Action criteria is based on individual credit union performance.

Secrets of a Winning Entry

Ever wonder what judges are looking for when they select the winners in the national recognition programs? Here's the scoop:

  • Review the entry form carefully and answer all of the questions. The scoring is based on these elements, so the more information you provide in response to the questions, the higher your score.
  • Read the rules, and make sure you're entering the appropriate competition. Remember: Dora Maxwell entries should focus on community involvement, or social responsibility programs external to the credit union. Louise Herring entries should be based on your credit union's internal programs and provide examples of how you put philosophy into action for your members.
  • Make your entry easy to read and easy to follow. Include the name of your credit union on the front cover of the binder. Use a table of contents. Avoid handwritten entries, and use standard fonts: no italic style or small print. Misspellings leave a bad impression, too.
  • Clearly identify your target audience. Who is involved in your project? Who is doing the work? Who are the beneficiaries? How many people did you reach? While giving donations is admirable, the judges also look for strong volunteer involvement.
  • Identify your results. Your results should correspond to your goals and objectives.
  • If you submit a video, keep it short. A well-done five-minute video is more impressive than 40 minutes of your charity golf tournament.
  • Bigger isn't always better. Keep your entry to a manageable size. Keep it fresh: Include current activities only, not programs or events from several years ago.
  • Include samples or descriptions of the promotional materials related to the entry, not for your used-vehicle sale or most successful loan promotion.

Of course, only a limited number of entries can win at the state and national levels. But by heeding this advice, you can improve your chances of receiving recognition for your good works.

Who was Dora Maxwell?

1897-1985

Dora Maxwell, a true pioneer of the credit union movement, was elected to the first board of directors of the New York State Credit Union League in 1921.

In 1931, Dora was employed as an organizer for the Credit Union Nation Extension Bureau--today known as the Credit Union National Association (CUNA). Dora was one of the original signers of CUNA's constitution at Estes Park in Colorado. She held numerous volunteer positions within the movement and was active locally and nationally until 1955.

In addition to organizing hundreds of credit unions, Dora Maxwell developed volunteer organizer clubs and worked with several organizations to help improve the living standards of the poor and needy.

2013 Winners

ASSET CATEGORY: $20-50 million

1st Place: ITT Employees (Fort Wayne Div) FCU
Helping to Heal

Located in a community in which a growing number of people don’t have access to health insurance, ITT Employees (Fort Wayne Div) FCU decided to raise funds to support the Matthew 25 Medical and Dental Clinic, which provides medical, dental, hearing and eye care to low-income residents of Allen County who do not qualify for Medicare and Medicaid. The organization receives no government assistance and is staffed mostly by doctors and nurses who volunteer their time. Because of increased demand on their services, the clinic had to add $5 and $10 co-pays for services this year. In order help offset some of their costs, the credit union set a goal to raise $750 for Matthew 25 Medical and Dental Clinic through a variety of fundraising efforts, including candy bar sales, collection boxes at the branches, newsletter articles and posters. Staff at the credit union also distributed brochures about the clinic to members so that they could become educated about the service that it provides. The collection efforts paid off and ITT Employees (Fort Wayne Div) FCU was able to exceed their initial fundraising goal by more than $100 and provide needed support to an organization that is an excellent example of people with skills reaching out to the community through volunteering.

ASSET CATEGORY: $50-100 million

1st Place: General CU
Adopting Allison

When credit union member Allison Stier discovered she had a very rare and aggressive form of inflammatory breast cancer, General CU adopted Allison and her family. Both Allison and her husband are self-employed, which meant that had little health insurance. Because of aggressive treatments that started immediately, she was not able to work. Her husband, Garrett, and 10-year-old son Carson carried the load for the family. The staff at the credit union devised a number of fundraisers to support the Stier family including auctioning Colts tickets, selling breast cancer merchandise in the lobby, jeans days, collection containers on the teller line and auctioning gift baskets. A credit union employee also designed a special breast cancer t-shirt that staff wore on "T-Shirt Tuesdays" to promote awareness. The most rewarding fundraising project was the "GCU Favorites Cookbook" which was done entirely by the employees in time for members to purchase it at Christmastime. They contacted companies that specialize in fundraising cookbooks, but determined they would do the work themselves to maximize the donation that would go to Allison and her family. Staff submitted favorite recipes and made the cookbooks using scrapbooking supplies that were donated. The cookbook sales alone netted more than $1,000. GCU staff helped make Christmas merry for the Stier family by asking members to get involved. As a result, they were able to deliver presents, food and a check for $2,500 to assist with bills and living expenses. GCU also had a mobile mammography coach visit the branch so that other women without insurance could have the opportunity for a check-up. Allison continues her battle with cancer. The GCU staff has decided to support her throughout 2013 because a lot of her early support systems are no longer available. Plans are already being made for additional projects.
 
2nd Place: AAA FCU
Samaritan's Feet
Recognizing that many children do not have appropriate shoes to wear, the credit union set out to help change that for at least 100 children in Indiana. AAA FCU partnered with Samaritan’s Feet and other Indiana credit unions to collect shoes and monetary donations which were presented to the organization during Convention 2012. Brightly colored shoe icons were displayed in the credit union’s three branch lobbies with the names of the members who contributed to the cause. This caught the attention of other members who, in turn, supported the effort. Staff members helped donors understand that while lack of footwear is an issue they have heard about in many third-world countries, many children right here in Indiana wear shoes that are worn out, the wrong size, or they have none at all. The credit union collected $2,670 and six pair of shoes. At the time, Samaritan’s Feet was able to manufacture and deliver a pair of shoes to a child anywhere in the world for $10. This means that AAA FCU was able to help 273 children—more than double the initial goal!
 

ASSET CATEGORY: $200-500 million

1st Place: Financial Center FCU
Celebrating 60 years with 60 hours

In order to celebrate a milestone in the credit union’s history in a way that benefits more than the membership and to share the credit union philosophy of "people helping people," Financial Center FCU issued a challenge to its employees to give more time to the communities they serve. Staff was divided into eight teams, each of which was tasked with completing 60 hours of community service throughout the year. Service activities included coaching sports teams, volunteering at churches, providing financial education outreach for youth and adults and participating in credit union-sponsored charity events along with other events that employees feel passionately about. Eighteen employees have donated their time and provided financial benefits from the credit union to 18 different organizations in the Indianapolis area. While the project allows employees to donate their time to any social or charitable organization, results have shown that Financial Center FCU, employees’ passions are aligned with organizations that the credit union supports on a larger scale including St. Vincent de Paul Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity, Latino outreach initiatives and local school programs.

 

ASSET CATEGORY: $500 million-1 billion

1st Place: FORUM CU
FORUM Spirit Advisory Council – Agapé

FORUM CU has an employee-led charitable group called the FORUM Spirit Advisory Council which provides a structure for employees to unite for a common good and to make a significant difference in the life of a local community organization. Each year, employees nominate organizations and vote to select one charity to partner with for an entire calendar year. The most recent charity chosen was Agapé Therapeutic Riding Resources, Inc., which offers group and private lessons for children and adults with special needs and whose mission is to "cultivate personal growth by strengthening the mind, body, and spirit though unique horse-facilitated experiences." The specific goal of the FORUM Spirit campaign was to raise sufficient funds needed to purchase an all-terrain four-wheel drive vehicle to carry supplies and materials throughout Agapé’s farm and to provide volunteers to assist with supporting the horse facility. A variety of fundraising activities were held including $5 jeans days, an Italian Dinner family event, a golf outing and more. In December, FORUM CU exceeded its goal by raising more than $20,000 to purchase the vehicle. The credit union also sent staff to participate in a day of service which involved manual labor to spruce up the grounds, technology assistance with the charity’s new network, assistance with the purchase and support of a new horse and other tasks related to making life better at Agapé.

 

ASSET CATEGORY: $1 billion or more

1st Place (Tie): Beacon CU
Project Spotlight

Beacon CU has developed Project Spotlight, a program designed to discover worthwhile projects in each of the communities that the credit union serves. The goal is to support both large and small projects and bring awareness to the many good things happening in the communities daily. Project Spotlight revolves around a charitable giving campaign which allows local charities, not-for-profits and community projects to receive nominations for the potential to earn funding from the credit union. Once the organizations in need of support have been submitted, a voting process is opened in which members of the community can vote online or in branches to support their favorite organization. After the votes are tallied, Beacon CU donates a total of $21,000, which is split between 36 local charitable organizations that represent the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners in each of the 12 communities where the credit union has a physical branch location. Project Spotlight not only provides essential financial support to the local charitable organizations that serve the communities surrounding Beacon CU, but also provides an outlet for small charities and home-grown local charitable projects to gain publicity and increase community awareness.
 
1st Place (Tie): Indiana Members CU
IPS #44
 
In order to concentrate its efforts to improve the educational and social needs of children in the community and stay true to its educational roots, Indiana Members CU decided to adopt IPS #44, which is located in a challenged area of Indianapolis. Credit union staff familiar with the needs of the school compiled a list of activities they could participate in to benefit the school. Indiana Members CU organized a number of fundraisers including the "Vegas Baby" event at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, a plant sale, a community yard sale, Terry’s Good Deeds and Jeans Fridays. Fundraising efforts resulted in the collection of more than $26,000. That money was used to provide students at the school with 525 full school uniforms, backpacks full of school supplies for each student and 1.8 tons of food in the school’s food pantry. It was also used to expand the size of the pantry and install additional shelving. Additionally, the credit union funded several educational and celebratory events for the students and staff throughout the year including, among others, pizza parties, Children’s Museum Night at the school, an Earth Day celebration, and a Holiday Cheer party during which each student was given a scarf and a gift and teachers and staff were provided with the ingredients for a turkey dinner in recognition of their dedicated hard work. Credit union staff also volunteered to work with and mentor students at IPS #44 throughout the year to help them achieve success in reading and other academic goals. Indiana Members CU’s efforts at IPS #44 help fill in gaps in funding, assist the school in meeting annual accreditation requirements and provide positive examples to the students, letting them know that there are people in their community concerned about their needs and who want to help them increase their chances for success.
