The 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. More than $2 million has been awarded in Disaster Relief grants since the Foundation’s disaster fund was established.
In 2018, Hurricane Florence devastated many in the Carolinas, and the Foundation was there to help our credit union employees get back quickly to serving members. To date, we have processed 253 grants and awarded $180,418.43 in aid to credit union employees. We are very appreciative of all donors in the Carolinas and across the country who made these grants possible, and of the time and energy of part-time Foundation staff and the League to ensure that funds were delivered quickly to those in need.
