The Foundation Activates CUAid to Support Credit Unions, Employees and Members

As you know, people and families in southeastern Texas have been devastated by Hurricane Harvey and the flooding that has followed. 

In response, the National Credit Union Foundation has activated the online disaster relief system CUAid.coop to raise money for credit union people affected by the storm and its aftermath. 

To date, CUAid is the only disaster relief fund dedicated to helping credit unions, their employees and members recover from major disasters. And, 100 percent of the proceeds from CUAid donations go directly to relief efforts. 

At CUNA Mutual Group, we know recovery will be a long and multi-faceted approach, and we feel it's important to provide immediate support. That's why the CUNA Mutual Group Foundation will provide $50,000 to CUAid. We’ll also watch for ways we can support the ongoing relief and recovery efforts in the months ahead.

As donations are posted through CUAid, The Foundation will coordinate with the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation in the disaster area to distribute money efficiently to affected credit union employees and volunteers.
