CU System
Louisiana activates aid for Ike Gustav survivors
HARAHAN, La. (9/17/08)--The Louisiana Credit Union Foundation, in partnership with the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF), has activated the online disaster relief system CUAid.coop to raise money for Louisiana credit union people affected by Hurricanes Gustav and Ike. Credit union supporters can now make donations through CUAid.coop, a secured website that accepts credit cards and wire transfers. Louisiana credit unions, employees, volunteers, and members can donate online via www.CUAid.coop/Louisiana. As donations are posted through CUAid.coop, NCUF will coordinate with the Louisiana foundation to distribute money efficiently to those who need it in the affected areas. All donations via CUAid.coop will go toward grants. Donations will be forwarded in their entirety to credit union organizations in affected areas through NCUF, which is tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the US Internal Revenue Code. NCUF does not use any portion of disaster relief donations to pay for the CUAid.coop web platform, travel to disaster areas, or any of NCUF’s costs to administer the national disaster relief program for credit unions. “CU Aid is one of many ways our foundation gives back to the credit union movement to thank donors for all their generosity,” explained NCUF Deputy Director Steve Bosack. “We especially want to help our friends in Louisiana recover as quickly as possible.”
