CUAid Available to Help Credit Union People Affected by Wildfires in California

Madison, Wis. – The National Credit Union Foundation (the Foundation) is working closely with staff at the California and Nevada Credit Union League to direct disaster relief funds to credit union people affected by wildfires in Northern and Southern California.

Donations to the Foundation’s General Disaster Relief Fund are being used for any credit union employees and volunteers affected by these wildfires. Credit union supporters in every state can always make donations to the General Disaster Relief Fund at cuaid.coop.

“After an unprecedented summer of natural disasters in 2018, we encourage everyone to give to the Foundation’s General Disaster Relief Fund to help respond to deadly wildfires that are burning in both Northern and Southern California,” said Gigi Hyland, Executive Director. “The General Disaster Relief Fund allows the flexibility to quickly shift aid between the individual efforts as each situation evolves and need becomes present.”

100% of the donations through CUAid goes to credit union disaster relief. The Foundation does not use disaster relief funds to pay for the CUAid.coop web platform or any of the Foundation costs to administer the national disaster relief program for credit unions. In the event that any donations to the “General Disaster Relief Fund” are not used for a current disaster affecting credit union people, the funds will be used for any future credit union disaster relief efforts.
