This past weekend the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) activated its online disaster relief system
CUAid.coop to raise money for Alabama credit union people affected by the tornadoes along with the other southern states.
Credit union supporters in every state can now make donations through a secured website that accepts credit cards and wire transfers. 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 across the US, to contribute directly to support other credit union people.
“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, the NCUF will coordinate with the LSCU to distribute money efficiently to credit union employees and members in the affected areas.
