This designation signifies that we are empowering our members to save for their future,” stated Patricia Kimmel, CEO/President of Belvoir Federal Credit Union.
Belvoir Federal, along with the other recipients of the Designation, were recognized at the America Saves National Savings Forum. “For years, banks and credit unions have participated in America Saves Week by offering incentives to encourage individuals to save money and build wealth,” said Nancy Register, National Director of America Saves. “This year, America Saves is excited to recognize credit unions that went above and beyond to encourage individuals to save with the new America Saves Designation of Excellence.”
