Hurricane Disaster Relief
Concern for community and helping those in need are part of our give-back philosophy. Members can help support Hurricane relief efforts with donations to programs like The National Credit Union Foundation’s CU Aid network and the American Red Cross. Relief efforts continue in Texas and the Gulf Coast and as flooding persists, many more individuals and families will be impacted.
The National Credit Union Foundation
The National Credit Union Foundation has activated the online disaster relief system CUAid.coop to raise money for credit union people affected by the recent hurricanes. Your contribution to the disaster relief efforts can stay within the credit union system by making donations at cuaid.coop.
CU Aid is the national online giving center for credit unions. All contributions are directed to the National Credit Union Foundation Disaster Relief Fund. The donations made to the Foundation’s Disaster Relief Fund will be disbursed through the credit union leagues or state foundations for use at the local level.
Your generosity will enable credit unions to re-open their doors and provide critical financial services and resources to their members and communities they serve to help them rebuild their lives and provide for their families.
The donations will be used to ensure that the credit unions are able to function in affected areas. Any contributions, large or small, will help make a difference in the lives of those affected. Thank you for your support at a time when it is needed most.
The American Red Cross
The American Red Cross is actively working to help people affected by Hurricanes and tropical storms across the country. The Red Cross is working along the Gulf Coast to help thousands of people whose lives and homes have been devastated by storms and flooding. They are actively providing shelter, food, and relief services to impacted individuals.
This massive relief response by the Red Cross is under way and financial donations allow them to continue to provide immediate disaster relief. You can help people affected by visiting redcross.org or calling 1- 800-RED CROSS.

Where will my donations be used? >
As donations are posted through CUAid.coop, the National Credit Union Foundation will coordinate with the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation in the disaster area to distribute money efficiently to affected credit union employees and volunteers to assist members. One-hundred percent of the donations through CUAid goes to credit union disaster relief. In the event that all donations are not used for Hurricane Harvey relief, the National Credit Union Foundation will transfer any and all unused funds to its "General Disaster Relief fund" for future disaster relief efforts. Updates on the Foundation’s Disaster Relief Fund can be found at www.cuaid.coop.
