The National Credit Union Foundation has activated the online disaster relief system at CUAid.coop to raise money for credit union people affected by the tornado outbreak last week across the South.
Credit union supporters in every state can now make donations through credit cards and wire transfers at the secured website.
According to the NCUF, CUAid is the only program of its kind that enables credit union employees, volunteers and members, as well as credit unions and state credit union foundations, to contribute directly to support their colleagues across the nation.
“We encourage credit union leaders all across the country to use CUAid.coop as a channel to collect donations from their employees, volunteers and members,” said NCUF Executive Director Bucky Sebastian.
As donations are posted through CUAid.coop, NCUF will coordinate with southern credit union leagues to distribute the financial help efficiently.
CUAid was launched in 2006 by NCUF in cooperation with state credit union foundations, state credit union leagues and CUNA’s Disaster Preparedness Committee.
