Discovery attendees contribute 13538 to NCUF disaster aid
MADISON, Wis. (6/26/08)--Credit union attendees of CUNA Mutual Group’s Discovery Conference contributed $13,538 to the National Credit Union Foundation’s (NCUF) Disaster Relief Fund, which provides disaster relief to credit unions and their employees, volunteers and members.

The money was generated through a silent auction on donated items including guitars signed by a band--the Bodeans--electronics, vacations and Brett Favre memorabilia. So far, the NCUF has received $225,000 in donations to help Iowa credit unions, employees and members affected by flooding. “These disaster relief donations come at a most critical time,” said NCUF Executive Director Steve Delfin. “Given all the recent disasters, the NCUF, state foundations and leagues have received far more grant applications than we can fund. We are very grateful to CUNA Mutual Group for dedicating the Discovery Conference’s silent auction to helping rebuild the NCUF Disaster Relief Fund.” The relief grants are used to help credit union employees through critical emergencies, provide for longer-term recovery, help restore credit unions’ operations and assist members. NCUF also activates CUAid.coop to help credit union supporters raise disaster relief donations for the credit union community. NCUF dedicates 100% of the donations to grants.
