Since 1932, Champion Credit Union has shared in our members' successes and they have helped contribute to ours. We are committed to being there for our members in times of need and that is never more important than when a disaster occurs.
The Champion Credit Union Member Relief Fund was established to provide financial assistance in the form of a grant to our members who have suffered from a disaster and are experiencing hardship while beginning to rebuild their lives and homes. If you are a Champion Credit Union member seeking assistance, please follow the link below to complete a short application and to provide supporting documentation for your request.
If you are a business owner or an individual wanting to make a tax-deductible contribution to the Champion Credit Union Member Relief Fund, please follow the link below.
The Champion Credit Union Member Relief Fund is managed by the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation, a 501(c)(3), grant-making public foundation supported by the credit union system in the Carolinas.
NOTE: Members whose homes and/or real and personal property suffer severe damage due to disasters and are experiencing financial hardship are eligible for grant assistance. Members must provide evidence of severe damage (e.g., pictures, insurance damage assessments, etc.) and a statement describing their severe damage and resulting financial hardship. Any disbursement shall only be made to existing CCU members at the time of the disaster. Disbursements shall be granted for immediate housing, food, medical supplies and services, clothing, and other similar disaster relief. The maximum amount of any grant shall be $2,000 for any single disaster occurrence. Multiple awards to CCU members residing in the same household exceeding the above-mentioned dollar limitations shall not be granted. For example, if both the husband and wife are CCU members at the time of the disaster, they are only collectively eligible to receive one grant of up to $2,000 for a single disaster occurrence. Grants may take up to 5 business days to process by the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation, the administrator of the Champion Credit Union Member Relief Fund. Notification on the application status will be provided by the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation via email with funds disbursed to your Champion Credit Union account within 1-2 business days of your grant’s approval. A grant is not taxable income.
