MADISON, Wis. (9/30/13)--The National Credit Union Foundation has made some tweaks related to its CUAid.coop disaster relief fund site to accommodate fundraising for credit union people impacted by the floods early this month in Colorado and to help state foundations or leagues with their co-branded CUAid efforts.
After consulting with the Mountain West Credit Union Association, NCUF last week had activated the CUAid.coop disaster relief system to raise funds for credit union employees and volunteers whose homes were damaged or destroyed by record rainfalls and flooding. MWCUA estimated that about 10,000 employees, volunteers and members need some assistance (See related News Now story, CUAid Activated For Colorado Flood Victims).
NCUF updated the campaign materials section of CUAid with new Web buttons that are specific to the Colorado flooding campaign. Instead of a generic "Donate now at CUAid.coop," the new buttons link to the Colorado fundraising efforts. The site contains Web buttons, Web banners, materials for statement stuffers, point of sale items and sample promotional letters.
CUAid is the only program of its kind that enables credit union employees, volunteers and members as well as credit unions and related organizations across the nation to contribute directly to support other credit union people.
