Cornerstone Disaster Response Update for Sept. 5
Tuesday, September 5, 2017 7:00 AM

Cornerstone’s disaster response team continues its work to determine the needs of affected credit unions, while managing offers of assistance to those in need. The storm damage was so significant, recovery is bound to be slow—perhaps months or years, in some cases; but our efforts will continue for as long as needed.

If you're a credit union that has been affected by Hurricane Harvey, please contact us as soon as possible to provide updates on your credit union status. We have staff ready to assist you and provide resources. Please visit our dedicated Hurricane Harvey webpage with extensive support information. Other contact info:

Grants are available for credit union employees and board members to assist with immediate disaster relief needs, such as out-of-pocket costs that may result from being evacuated. The process is quick and easy. Just complete the Disaster Emergency Relief Grant Application.

Best Ways for Credit Unions to Provide Assistance

  • Donate to CUAid. CUNA Mutual has activated their disaster response system, and donating through CUAid ensures that 100 percent of your dollars goes directly to helping credit unions in need.
  • Donate to the Cornerstone Foundation, which will provide direct disaster relief assistance to credit union employees and board members.
  • If you have a specific resources you can make available to support business continuity or recovery efforts of credit unions, email DisasterNotification@cornerstoneleague.coop.
  • We are also asking credit unions in unaffected areas to support evacuees and displaced humans (and their pets) through Cornerstone's Credit Unions Care community engagement initiative.
