“When we fall on hard times, Iowans know how to come together to serve their family, neighbors, and friends. In that spirit, Collins Community Credit Union is proud to do our part,” said Stefanie Rupert, president and CEO from Collins Community Credit Union. “Iowa credit unions have a long history of providing a safety net to Iowans when they need it most, and we are honored to work together as an industry to maximize our impact.”
To date, $500,000 has been committed toward the establishment of the fund to provide support to individuals, small businesses, and state-wide relief efforts.
Applications and instructions on how to apply will be available April 1 on the Iowa Credit Union Foundation website.
“Founded during the devastating floods of 1993, the Foundation is here to help again in this time of economic uncertainty,” said Jaimie Miller, Executive Direction of ICUF. “We sincerely thank Collins Community Credit Union for the generous donation that is a true reflection of the ‘people helping people’ philosophy of credit unions and will enable us to do more to help vulnerable Iowans and communities across the state.”
