National Credit Union Foundation Commits to Hurricane Relief; Minnesota Credit Union Foundation Makes Donation
The National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) has committed to support credit union employees and volunteers impacted by Hurricanes Ian and Fiona with CUAid. CU Aid provides emergency funds to credit union employees and volunteers in the event of a natural disaster. The Minnesota Credit Union Foundation recently made a donation to CU Aid in support of this effort.
“CUAid was made for moments like this. We manage the fund in such a way as to position us to provide support, even when multiple disasters happen in quick succession. But we are seeing environmental disasters wreak more havoc, more often. In light of that, and following both Hurricanes Fiona and Ian, the Foundation is calling on our credit union and system partners to continue to donate to CUAid,” said André Parraway, the NCUF’s chief financial and operations officer.
Individuals or organizations can contribute to CUAid at any time. The restricted nature of the fund ensures every penny donated goes directly to supporting credit unions and their people recover from catastrophic events. You can donate to CUAid here.
