Credit unions and individuals throughout California and Nevada contributed more than $16,000, of which the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues matched $10,000, to support the construction of a new facility for Busia Compassionate Centre, an orphanage in rural western Kenya supported by the World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU). League member credit unions that donated to the Busia campaign include CoastHills FCU, Greater Nevada CU, KeyPoint CU, Kinecta FCU, Meriwest CU, Mission FCU, North Island CU, Redwood CU, San Mateo CUUnited Health CU, and Xceed Financial CU.
