Our 2021 Summit Hike the Hill Scholarship Fundraiser has gone virtual! Now you can participate from anywhere in the Dakotas on your smart phone or any internet connected device!
We are very excited to expand our fundraiser to include not just those attending the Summit in person, but those of you who were not able to join us this year. You will have the opportunity to bid on donated items in a silent auction or buy raffle tickets for the opportunity to win a gift card. Proceeds from both will benefit our Hike the Hill Scholarship fund.
In each of the past several years, our fundraiser has generated approximately $5,000 in revenue. The funds are then used to provide financial assistance scholarships to DakCU members from North and South Dakota who attend the CUNA GAC Conference and other meetings, such as Fall Legislative and Regulatory Hike the Hill events. Since 2008, 75 individual scholarships have been awarded for a total of $54,000!
This important fundraiser wouldn't be possible without the amazing support of our North and South Dakota DakCU affiliated credit unions. We appreciate and thank you for your ongoing support!
To effectively promote our fundraiser, we will be publishing the list of prizes prior to the start of the Summit. Kindly submit your donation (including Gift Cards) using the "Donate Silent Auction Item" form below. After your donation is approved, it will then appear with all donated items at the bottom of this page. Since it is virtual – even if no one from your credit union is able to attend, we still welcome donations!
If you need assistance or have any questions be sure to reach out to Jay Kruse at 701-250-3928.
If you are attending the Summit, please bring your prize donation with you for display. If that is not possible, we will contact you after the Summit to help deliver your donation to its winner. To participate in the auction or raffle, all bidders must be an employee or volunteer of a DakCU affiliated credit union and must be 21 years of age or older to win items which include alcohol. Individuals need not be present to win; your item will be delivered to your credit union’s main branch after the Summit.
Thank you for your donations and support of our Silent Auction and Raffle! Happy Bidding!
