The National Credit Union Foundation Dinner Presenting the Herb Wegner Memorial Awards is the primary fundraising event for the Foundation. Your support of this inspirational evening allows the Foundation to sustain and expand initiatives to improve people’s financial lives through credit unions.

We had an incredible evening celebrating our award winners on March 11th with over 900 credit union professionals. After the evening, one attendee said, "It was a renewal of passion to have me ask myself if I am doing enough to advance the industry."

Since 1989, the Foundation has presented the Herb Wegner Memorial Awards, which are often referred to as the “Academy Awards” of the credit union movement. The awards are named in honor of the late Credit Union National Association (CUNA) CEO Herb Wegner, whose tireless dedication, innovative ideas and deeds truly revolutionized the ways that credit unions serve their communities.

These awards are the credit union movement’s highest national honors and celebrate individuals and programs that put belief into action. Their achievements fulfill the mission of promoting financial freedom for millions of people around the world.

The awards are presented each year at a special event in conjunction with the CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC).
