Feb 26, 2009 — Yeshiva University received an Eddy Award from “Pensions & Investments,” an international newspaper that focuses on money management, at the newspaper’s 17th annual Defined Contribution Conference in Miami Beach, Fla., on February 9. The Eddy Awards recognize the highest caliber investment education programs of defined contribution plan sponsors — corporate, union and not-for-profit — and service providers.
Yeshiva University received a first-place award in the category “Ongoing Education: Not-for-Profit” for its campaign to educate staff, faculty and administration about changes in its retirement plan, as provided by Prudential Retirement.
The award stated that Yeshiva’s campaign “was totally branded, featuring its own employees and the same colors as the school itself. The information was solid and complete. And, kudos for warning people about the negatives of taking loans.”
