UW Credit Union Donates $10,000 to Help People of Ukraine

The Ukrainian Credit Union Displacement Fund will support immediate humanitarian needs and credit union recovery efforts

The Ukrainian flag flies against a bright blue sky.

UW Credit Union has contributed $10,000 to the Ukrainian Credit Union Displacement Fund (part of the Worldwide Foundation of Credit Unions) to address immediate humanitarian needs triggered by the conflict with Russia.

The Worldwide Foundation of Credit Unions will donate more than half of all dollars collected in the initial weeks of its campaign to vetted non-governmental organizations providing emergency humanitarian assistance in Ukraine or in neighboring European countries hosting Ukrainian refugees.

The remaining funds, along with continued fundraising, will go toward longer-term credit union recovery efforts.  

Once the situation in Europe is stable, WOCCU will work on recovery and rebuilding efforts in collaboration with the Ukrainian American Credit Union Association, which represents 12 credit unions serving Ukrainian people dislocated to the United States.
