Displacement Fund of Ukrainian Credit Unions Approaches $1.4 Million | 2022-05-17


The World Foundation for Credit Unions (WFCU) has now raised $1.37 million for its Ukrainian Credit Union Displacement Fund. This total includes donations from more than 1,200 individuals, nearly 200 credit unions and dozens of credit union leagues, associations, foundations and other industry partners.

“When we launched the Ukrainian Credit Union Displacement Fund on February 27, we hoped that we would not need to raise funds for this cause again in May. But the realities and challenges facing Ukrainian credit unions , their employees and members are still facing Russia’s ongoing aggression makes every donation to the Displacement Fund all the more vital. We continue to be amazed and grateful for the level of support our international community is providing to the Ukraine,” said Mike Reuter, executive director of the Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions.

Over 40 organizations donated at least $10,000 to the Travel Fund. In addition to the 17 industry partners who donated this amount or more in the first month of fundraising, the list now also includes:
