The small gesture of sharing an individual business card resulted in a large outpouring of support for victims of Hurricane Sandy at the Credit Union National Association's Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C.

LendKey Technologies, which is a CUNA Strategic Services provider, donated $5,000 to CUAid--the credit union disaster relief fund managed by the National Credit Union Foundation.

The company, formerly known as Fynanz, had pledged a $5 donation for every business card that GAC attendees pinned to the Goodwill Wall in its exhibit hall booth during the convention.

Vince Passione, LendKey CEO, thanked GAC attendees who took the time to visit the booth and support its efforts.

"Our employees, and many of our clients, were in areas hit the hardest by the storm," he said, noting that the contributions would go "toward helping the victims recover fully."

LendKey, based in New York and with offices in Ohio, provides a cloud-based lending platform for credit unions to make private student loans to their members.
