Dort Federal Credit Union Receives 2018 Governor's Service Award
On May 1, Dort Federal Credit Union was selected as a winner for the 2018 Governor’s Service Awards in the Corporate Community Leader category. The Governor’s Service Awards are given annually by the Governor of the State of Michigan to individuals, organizations and businesses to acknowledge their commitment to serving their communities through volunteerism.
This year, the Michigan Community Service Commission received more than 100 nominations for the Governor’s Service Awards.
“This year’s winners have inspiring stories. They have made a tremendous impact on the lives of others through their service,” said Governor Rick Snyder. “I am extremely grateful for the contributions they have made for Michigan and am honored to recognize their incredible accomplishments.”
In 2017 alone, Dort Federal donated to, volunteered at and participated in nearly 100 events and charities in the community. This has led to countless hours of volunteer work by employees, 45 pints of blood donated and more than $19,000 raised personally from employees and donated to charities.
Dort Federal does not implement a required volunteer program, so the time that employees of the organization put towards charities are all in kind nature. Nearly continuous staff involvement goes far in bettering the communities they live, work, learn, worship and volunteer in.
“Through the people helping people philosophy, we are able to serve our members, their communities and society as a whole,” said Dort Federal CEO Vicki Hawkins. “We are extremely honored and humbled to be nominated and to receive this award. Giving back and supporting the well being of the communities we serve is a very important part of who we are as an organization.”Go to main navigation
