The Ukrainian Credit Union Displacement Fund will direct support to mitigate both short and long-term impacts to Ukraine’s credit union system and those that look to it for support, including both employees and members. Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions (WFCU) in partnership with the World Council (WOCCU), is leveraging their global network to identify the immediate priority areas where funding can be used to support displaced credit union members and staff.
WFCU is launching this fund to send support to Ukraine’s credit unions in where it is most needed in the short term as well as the challenges Ukraine’s credit union system faces for the long term.
Grants are available for credit union employees and board members to assist with immediate disaster relief needs.
