In the last 5 years, nearly $7.5 million has been distributed by the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation as disaster relief, hardship assistance, educational programs and grants, academic and needs-based scholarships, and non-profit grant support. As the credit union industry’s partner in philanthropy, we are building on the values embraced by credit unions and uniting our resources towards the greater good. The Foundation’s new membership will expand on the support of our shared “People Helping People” philosophy and increase our community impact! To read more about our impact, please click here.
