The Carolinas Credit Union Foundation’s Disaster Relief Fund is a resource for credit unions and communities that are in need of assistance because of a disastrous event. Through the years, the Foundation has worked with the National Credit Union Foundation, state and local government officials and credit unions in reaching those in need during times of disaster. Nearly $3 million has been awarded in disaster relief grants since the Foundation’s disaster fund was established following the September 11, 2001 attacks.
Guided by the call from leaders of credit unions in the Carolinas, the Carolinas Credit Union League & Carolinas Credit Union Foundation set a goal of raising $50,000 for the Ukrainian Credit Union Displacement Fund by April 1, 2022. Together, the credit union community in the Carolinas raised more than $280,000 through May 2022. The fund, established by the Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions, directs support to mitigate the impact to Ukraine’s credit union system and those that look to it for support, including both employees and members.
