Hoffman Award

Raymond O. Hoffman Award.

Every year, MSDFCU celebrates the successes of our graduating high school seniors by honoring several with the Raymond O. Hoffman Award. Since 1971, the award has been given to current year high school graduates. Mr. Hoffman was the founder and first president of Merck Sharp & Dohme Federal Credit Union. He contributed countless hours of volunteer service to the Credit Union's formation and success.

The awards are cash awards which the graduates can use as they see fit. They are based on the graduates' volunteer efforts over their four-year high school career. Entries are submitted to a third party who judges the entries based on their community service merits. The winning applicants will be chosen and then honored at the Credit Union's Annual Meeting held in early spring.

Awardees must be members of MSDFCU or be eligible for membership.
