MAPLE GROVE, Minn., July 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TopLine Credit Union Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization of local member-owned financial cooperative TopLine Federal Credit Union, raised $47,000 towards a scholarship fund that will help students with costs of higher education at a recent lawn bowling benefit event.

The sixth TopLine Credit Union Foundation charitable event took place at Brookview Golf Course and Lawn Bowling in Golden Valley, Minnesota on Thursday, June 30th, a beautiful warm and sunny day, with over 130 attendees and 51 sponsoring organizations from across the nation coming together to enjoy lawn bowling, networking, live auction, silent auction and raffles, all to benefit a great cause — financial grants for education.

Since the inception of TopLine Credit Union Foundation in 2015, the foundation has awarded over $86,500 to recipients pursing or continuing post-secondary education. In addition, the foundation has granted new young members of TopLine up to a $25 match on initial deposits made into any new youth savings or checking account to encourage saving and personal finance habits. The foundation also supports local and global financial education, and in July 2022 awarded $1,500 in scholarship funds to African Education and Health Initiative (AFEDHI) to support post-secondary educational needs and goals of students in Nigeria.
