What About CUAid?
CUAid™ harnesses the cooperative generosity of our system to get credit union employees and volunteers back on their feet so they can serve members. CUAid™ was designed to respond to regional disasters where one part of the country needs help and the rest of us can support our credit union family in that area. And it’s worked well through hurricanes, wildfires, tropical storms and even the Oklahoma bombing 20 years ago that so deeply affected three credit unions. It wasn’t built for a national state of emergency like the one our entire country is currently experiencing and it does not fall under our guidelines.
