Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union knows that our members have quite a few choices when it comes to selecting a financial institution. We are blessed members have entrusted us with their hard-earned money for more than eight decades. But more so, we are humbled when our members name us as their favorite financial provider.
Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Award
In fall 2021, the Tennessee Credit Union League recognized Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union (TVFCU) for our commitment to social responsibility and our demonstration of the credit union mission of “people helping people.” The awards committee selected TVFCU from applicants from across Tennessee as part of Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) Award Program.
CUNA created the Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Award to encourage and honor credit union and chapter involvement in community projects and activities. Maxwell was a community activist who committed her life to credit union development, to her community and to serving the underserved.
TVFCU won the Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Award for our efforts in spring 2020 to provide 800 complimentary Yoshino Flowering Cherry and Kwansan Flowering Cherry trees to those impacted by the rash of Easter Sunday tornadoes in the Chattanooga, Tenn., area. The trees were between 7 and 8 feet tall.
Louise Herring Philosophy in Action Award
The Louise Herring Philosophy in Action Award is named for one of the original signers of the 1934 constitution who created CUNA and recognizes credit unions that do an extraordinary job incorporating credit union philosophy into daily operations. Herring started numerous credit unions and believed strongly in applying credit union philosophy as an operating principle.
TVFCU won the Louise Herring Philosophy in Action Award for our commitment to helping small businesses. In April 2020, TVFCU awarded the allocated 2020 Idea Leap Grant funds to existing Idea Leap members. The funds were distributed to 80 small businesses with Idea Leap loans to help alleviate some of the financial burden brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Then fall 2020, TVFCU created a smaller, virtual Idea Leap Grant Pitch Competition and presented grants to three small businesses.
By TVFCU winning these two awards on the state level, the award applications will advance to CUNA’s national level.
