CUAid Activated for CU People Affected by Hurricanes

Thu, Sep 21, 2017

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 hurricanes. Credit union supporters in every state can make donations at cuaid.coop.

The Foundation is also still accepting funds to help with the devastation caused by Harvey and Irma, working with the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation and other organizations to disburse funds to many of the thousands of credit union employees and volunteers affected. 

“We surpassed over $1 million in contributions for both CUAid and Cornerstone efforts to help credit union people put their life back together after Tropical Storm Harvey,” said Foundation Communications Director Christopher Morris. “According to the latest reports, up to 15,000 credit union employees were in Hurricane Irma’s path. Having two large-scale disaster relief campaigns open simultaneously is unprecedented, therefore please know that any and all donations to CUAid will make a profound difference to your credit union colleagues in need.” 

As donations are posted through CUAid.coop for hurricane relief, the National Credit Union Foundation will coordinate with organizations in the disaster areas to distribute money efficiently to affected credit union employees and volunteers. 

100% of the donations through CUAid goes to credit union disaster relief. The Foundation does not use disaster relief funds to pay for the CUAid.coop web platform or any of the Foundation costs to administer the national disaster relief program for credit unions.
