Credit unions help people, especially in times of great need. Join us in continuing to provide aid to people affected by recent a natural disasters including the California Wildfires by Clicking Here.
The National Credit Union Foundation (the Foundation) has activated the online disaster relief system CUAid.coop to raise money for credit union people affected by recent natural disasters. Credit union supporters in every state can make donations at cuaid.coop.
As donations are posted through CUAid.coop, the National Credit Union Foundation will coordinate with the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation in the disaster area to distribute money efficiently to affected credit union employees and volunteers. 100% of the donations through CUAid goes to credit union disaster relief. In the event that all donations are not used for California Wildfire, Hurricane Harvey or Hurricane Irma relief, the National Credit Union Foundation will transfer any and all unused funds to its "General Disaster Relief fund" for future disaster relief efforts.
The National Credit Union Foundation (the Foundation) is the charitable arm of the U.S. credit union movement and works as a catalyst to improve people’s financial lives through credit unions. Through grants and programs, the Foundation is strengthening financial well-being, igniting passion and instilling knowledge about the credit union difference, and uniting resources to help credit union people during disaster. Donations to the Foundation ultimately enable credit unions to help their members reach life-changing goals and achieve financial freedom.
