Ecuadorian Earthquake Support Needed

Hundreds of lives have been lost and credit unions devastated following several high magnitude earthquakes near Ecuador’s northern coast, where World Council is working to bring payment systems to rural credit unions. As aftershocks continue to shake the region, rescuers search for survivors and credit unions try to reopen.

Thanks to generous support from CUNA Mutual Group, World Council will provide immediate relief to credit union staff and support credit union rebuilding efforts. Much-needed cash contributions from the global credit union industry and individuals will offer additional assistance to those whose lives have been devastated.

To support the rebuilding of Ecuadorian credit unions, donations via check, credit card, or wire may be sent to:

Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions, Inc.
5710 Mineral Point Road
Madison, WI 53705, USA

Donations can also be made online today at

Please indicate your donation is designated for Ecuador Earthquake Relief.

Please join the Northwest Credit Union Foundation in sending support to our sister credit unions worldwide. The NWCUF will be sending $4,000 from our Disaster Relief Fund.
