Georgia United Foundation Donates $10,000 to Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions

DULUTH, GA (May 16, 2022) – The Georgia United Foundation, the charitable giving arm of Georgia United Credit Union, donated $10,000 in relief funds to the Ukrainian Credit Unions Displacement Fund sponsored by the Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions. Georgia United joined with other credit unions across the country to help support Ukraine credit union members and staff displaced by war.

The Ukrainian Credit Union Displacement Fund directs support to immediate humanitarian needs triggered by Russia’s continued targeting of civilians, which has caused a crisis for those still in Ukraine and millions of Ukrainian refugees who have fled the country.

Credit unions are known around the world for their “people helping people” collaborative philosophy and for aiding communities – regardless of their geographical location. When Georgia United learned more about the situation displacing Ukrainians at the CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference, they were one of the first credit unions to donate to this initiative. 

“As cooperatives founded in solidarity, it was important for us to quickly come to the aid of our Ukrainian credit union family. Our individual efforts to help the Ukraine are important, as collaborative units, we can multiply our support and have a greater impact,” said Georgia United President and CEO Debbie Smith.

The World Council of Credit Unions launched the Displacement Fund on February 27, less than one week after Russia invaded Ukraine. In six weeks more than $1 million in funds have been raised. To contribute, visit  Ukrainian Credit Union Displacement Fund or Text CUS4UKRAINE to 44-321 to donate.
