How The Programme is Funded

Members have been encouraged to make a minimum contribution of $12.00 or the equivalent of $1.00 per month to the NCCU Disaster Relief Fund. Those who can afford more have been encouraged to make larger contributions e.g. $20.000, $50.00 or $100.00 and this is an annual contribution. Members can make direct deposits or authorize the credit union to make transfers from their savings accounts to the Fund.

How The Programme Works

When a member is affected by a disaster, he or she informs the credit union. Each disaster situation is assessed by Management and the level of assistance determined in accordance with the policy. Assistance will be provided in the form of cash, household effects, food items or building materials.

In the case of overseas request for assistance, cash or supplies would be sent to the Credit Union, Leagues or the Caribbean Confederation of Credit Unions.
