When Annie Wilma Vamper passed away in May of 1990, the community development credit union movement lost one of its heroes. Annie's life-long dedication to the credit union movement remains an inspiration to credit unions serving low-income people and communities today. The Annie Vamper Helping Hands Award honors Annie's memory, and is the highest honor presented by Inclusiv, celebrating individuals whose work for the movement continues Annie's legacy and exemplifies the community development credit union mission of serving the undeserved.

Inclusiv suspended the Annie Vamper Helping Hands Award in 2020 and 2021. This year, Inclusiv honors three Annie Vamper awardees for 2020, 2021 and 2022. The awardees will be announced in advance of the 2022 Inclusiv Conference.
