Iowa Credit Union Foundation Awards $46,000 to Scholarship Winners
Doubles Scholarship Pledge Due to Record-Breaking Number of Applications
DES MOINES – The Iowa Credit Union Foundation (ICUF), the philanthropic arm of the Iowa Credit Union League (ICUL), doubled its Warren A. Morrow Memorial scholarship pledge to recipients this year due to a record-breaking number of applicants. With the support of Iowa credit unions, ICUF awarded eight more high school scholarships and four more post-high school scholarships than in previous years, totaling a first-ever award amount of $46,000 to 24 students.
“With the help of our Iowa credit union partners, Affiliates Management Company (AMC) and its family of companies, ICUF could proudly double its scholarship pledge to recipients this year,” said Marian Holmes, Board Chair of ICUF. “It is our passion to continue serving our community of credit union partners and helping champion financial well-being for all.”
Warren A. Morrow dedicated his life and career to helping the undeserved and empowering the Hispanic community. To honor Warren's legacy, the Iowa Credit Union Foundation provides scholarships to Iowa credit union members through the Warren A. Morrow Memorial Scholarship program. Last year, $23,000 was awarded to 12 high school and post-high school students pursuing further education.
“The Iowa Credit Union Foundation is grateful for the additional support from our amazing Iowa credit union partners,” said Ena Babic Barnes, Executive Director, ICUF. “By doubling our commitment to Iowa credit union members, we can continue strengthening the financial lives of Iowans and celebrate those who passionately lead by the credit union philosophy of ‘people helping people’.”

How have you served your community, and how do you see your credit union working in your community? Consider sharing personal examples and experiences.
