Leveraging the Credit Union Difference Session Materials

Uniting Resources to Help Credit Union People During Disaster

Through CUAid, the Foundation raises disaster relief donations to support credit union employees and volunteers who suffer unrecoverable losses.

CUAid: Disaster Relief
The National Credit Union Foundation is able to leverage funds from many credit unions to tackle issues and opportunities that are difficult for any single credit union to tackle. From financial literacy projects, grants, philosophy training, to the Biz Kid$ television show, the Foundation is often an incubator of ideas that are important to our social mission and is one of the credit union movement’s best examples of collaboration for the benefit of our members and communities.
