WEOKIE Federal Credit Union has made a donation of $5,000 in support of the Ukrainian Credit Union Displacement Fund. This donation will help mitigate both short and long-term impacts to Ukraine’s credit union system and those looking to it for support, including both employees and members.
"WEOKIE is pleased to join our fellow 5,200+ U.S. credit unions, along with over 81,000 credit unions worldwide in support of the members and employees of 322 Ukrainian Credit Unions with this donation," Jeff Carpenter, President, and CEO of WEOKIE, said. "We are honored to have this opportunity to support them as they fight for their freedom and to maintain the cooperative credit union movement. We will continue to send our thoughts and prayers for their safety and ultimate victory in this war."
The Ukrainian Credit Union Displacement Fund will direct support towards the impacts on Ukraine’s credit union system. The Worldwide Foundation for Credit Union’s (WFCU) in partnership with the World Council (WOCCU), is leveraging its global network to identify the immediate priority areas where funding can be used to support displaced credit union members and staff. The WFCU is launching this fund to send support to Ukraine’s credit unions where it is needed in the short-term, as well as the challenges Ukraine’s credit union system faces for the long-term.
