Foundation Seeks Your Help in Providing Aid to CU Staff and Volunteers Still Recovering from Harvey
Friday, November 3, 2017 6:50 AM

The catastrophic disaster that was Hurricane Harvey may now be history, but the damage left in its wake remains an expensive headache for many. The Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation and CUAid have together raised $1,708,428 for disaster relief. To date, the Foundation has issued 1,303 Phase I grants totaling $1,173,005 to credit union employees and volunteers.

Once these individuals have fully assessed their damages and out-of-pocket expenses—and after they've exhausted other resources such as insurance, FEMA, etc.—they may apply for a Phase II Disaster Relief Grant of up to $5,000 from the Foundation for the purpose of addressing unfulfilled disaster recovery needs.

The grant process will enter Phase II as of early November. However, the amounts of the individual grants will depend on the total disaster relief funds available to those who apply. Simple math tells us that the funds available now for Phase II grants will fall short.

That's why the Foundation is asking for your support to help us help credit union staff and volunteers who continue to need assistance for their recovery efforts. Our goal is to raise a minimum of $1 million before Dec. 31 in order to adequately serve Phase II needs.

Please help us continue spreading the “people helping people” philosophy by donating to the Harvey Relief Fund.

Thank you for your continued generosity. If you have any questions, please contact Courtney Moran, executive director of the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation, at or 469-385-6448.
