California Fires

For the credit union community, this destruction has hit home. We are a family, and when a family member is impacted we come to their assistance. These are communities in need. We urge you to visit the following two resources to help those affected by these tragic fires:


The National Credit Union Foundation is accepting donations via their online disaster relief system CUAid.coop. Please select the general disaster relief option. The National Credit Union Foundation will coordinate with the California Credit Union League to distribute donations collected through CUAid to help credit union employees with critical and longer-term recovery needs. One hundred percent of donations will go to credit union disaster relief.

NorthBay Fire Relief

Redwood Credit Union (RCU), in partnership with RCU Community Fund, The Press Democrat, and Senator Mike McGuire, is now accepting financial donations to aid relief efforts and assist victims of the 2017 North Bay fires. 100% of your donations will go directly to support those affected by the fires.

North Coast Opportunities

In addition, Community First Credit Union—in partnership with North Coast Opportunities, Inc.—is accepting tax-deductible donations at any of its branches, or you may visit https://www.ncoinc.org/ to donate online. As with the credit union’s previous relief efforts, 100 percent of donations will go to those affected.
