Endowment Program

ACEC/MN and affiliate member Hiway Federal Credit Union (Hiway) created a joint endowment strategy designed to sustain funding for the ACEC/MN scholarship program. Hiway launched the endowment effort with an initial contribution of $5,000, with ACEC/MN matching the amount. But that’s just the beginning of a campaign that has has generated over $66,000 to date.

The development of this fund meets two important scholarship committee goals: the first being the creation of a self-sustaining source for scholarship funds, and the second being a way to make participation in that funding source easily accessible to all members’ firms and their employees.

Hiway’s endowment donations will be triggered by credit union financial transactions, such as loans or deposits, by ACEC/MN member firms or their employees. The larger the value of the ACEC/MN member loans and deposits with Hiway, the greater the endowment contribution.

“Hiway is honored and excited to partner with ACEC/MN in such a meaningful endeavor, with lasting impact,” recognizes Hiway President David Boden. “Serving the engineering community in Minnesota has been at Hiway’s very core for over 80 years and the development of an endowment fund is a very exciting way for us to continue to support and serve this industry.”

The endowment fund provides a new way for ACEC/MN members to play an active and impactful role in supporting and sustaining our scholarship program. To learn how you can help support the ACEC/MN Scholarship Endowment by becoming Hiway member call Mark Hodowanic at 651.259.6456 or email
