Get Inspired at the 2021 National Credit Union Foundation Celebration!

Sponsorship & viewing packages now available

March 2, 2021, 5:30 PM CT

The National Credit Union Foundation (the Foundation) is excited to announce that sponsorship and viewing packages are available for purchase for the 2021 Foundation Celebration, a virtual event spotlighting past Wegner Award winners.

We shared earlier that the Foundation will not be presenting the annual Herb Wegner Memorial Awards in 2021 as we want to honor new winners as they should be, in person with family and friends. However, we are looking forward to bringing the spirit and inspiration of the Wegner Dinner into your organization and home through the Foundation Celebration!

The Foundation Celebration provides a fun “night out” for our movement to get dressed up, experience interviews with some of our favorite past Wegner Award winners with help from emcee Andy Janning, support the National Credit Union Foundation and an opportunity to get re-energized with passion for the difference we make as credit unions.

Your support of the Foundation Celebration makes all the difference. People need credit unions now more than ever, and the National Credit Union Foundation exists to help credit unions put their best foot forward to meet members where they are in life. The Foundation enhances the work of credit unions through grants and resources to put financial well-being at the center of their strategy, training and tools to empower a culture of living their values and mechanisms to facilitate disaster relief efforts.

Credit unions and the Foundation have a shared purpose and together, we are truly boundless.
