One of STA’s long-time clients, Town and Country Federal Credit Union, was recently awarded First Place in the Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Community Service Award for their 2010 Better Neighbor Fund. TCFCU’s Better Neighbor Fund was a charitable giving campaign created & designed by Sean Tracey Associates in response to T&C senior management’s desire to support good works in the communities of Cumberland and York Counties. T&C decided to award a generous total of $25,000 through eight grants to the local organizations, causes or ideas that received the most votes over the course of one month. The contest was conducted primarily on Town and Country’s just-launched .
The prestigious Dora Maxwell Award recognizes the efforts of a credit union that strengthens local institutions and improves the lives of non members through community outreach programs other than personal finance education. The state awards were presented at the Maine Credit Union League‘s Annual Meeting & Convention in Augusta, Me. These Awards are part of a national program coordinated by the Credit Union National Association. Of the ten Maine credit unions recognized for their charitable contributions, Town and Country was the only one to receive an award. The judges called the efforts of Maine’s credit unions “A demonstration of what can be accomplished when people cooperate with each other to make our communities and our state a better place”. Town and Country will compete with other first place honorees this fall at CUNA’s national awards competition.
