Three CA Credit Unions Win State-Level CUNA Awards


Three California Credit Union League member credit unions have won first place in the state-level 2022 Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Awards. These credit unions will now advance to the national competition.

Meriwest CU won the Desjardins Adult Financial Education award for its Financial Education Cohort Series, a weekly education program that offers workshops on various topics including budgeting, understanding credit, preventing identity theft, interviewing tips, and more. In 2021, Meriwest CU educated 8,000 individuals, many virtually.  

SAFE CU claimed first-place in the Dora Maxwell competition for its annual grant program that supports regional nonprofits that align with SAFE CU’s pillars of philanthropy: education, healthcare, and military veteran.

Patelco CU’s Virtual Branch won the Louise Herring award. The virtual branch submission won for its inovative offering that limited disruption while providing the same high level of service as in-person banking. 

Congratulations to all!
