As part of this year’s KCUA Annual Meeting and Convention, the YES Committee held their annual silent auction to raise money for credit union education, annual meeting, financial literacy and college scholarships. Over $1,600 was raised in this year’s silent auction.
A live auction was also held during the awards banquet raising an additional $1,200. These funds help provide scholarship assistance in the following areas:
Credit Union Education Scholarships Education scholarships are awarded quarterly and provide financial reimbursement to credit union professionals and volunteers seeking to improve their professional and leadership development.
Annual Meeting Scholarships Scholarships are available to credit union staff and volunteers. One scholarship per credit union. YES will pay 100% of registration cost only.
Financial Literacy Scholarships Scholarships are available to reimburse credit unions for out of pocket expenses incurred for financial literacy events held at their credit union or in their community.
College Scholarships Scholarships are available to children and grandchildren of credit unions staff and volunteers and are awarded annually to provide financial assistance for tuition and books for a college student or graduating high school senior.
A special thank you to those who donated items and cash for the auctions and for those who participated in the auctions. For more information and to apply for a scholarship, go to YES Committee Scholarships.
