CUAid: Disaster Relief
Helping credit union employees and volunteers rebuild after natural disasters strike.
The National Credit Union Foundation has provided $570,000 through CUAid to help our credit union colleagues recover and rebuild after Hurricanes Fiona and Ian. Your support ensures we can respond similarly when disaster strikes again.
People helping people
The National Credit Union Foundation’s CUAid disaster relief program is the People Helping People philosophy in action. Every penny donated to CUAid goes directly to credit union volunteers and employees affected by natural disasters.
