The USC Credit Union Foundation Announces the Allied Impact Fund

Now more than ever, USC Credit Union is committed to our core philosophy, People Helping People. We have listened to the needs of you, our member-owners, and the communities we serve and quickly realized that with every challenge comes an opportunity.

The USC Credit Union Foundation has launched an emergency relief fund to assist our most vulnerable community in need during the COVID-19 pandemic. A pandemic that has caused significant disruption to the income of many Angelenos and limited their ability to get groceries or basic needs.

USC Credit Union Foundation’s Allied Impact Fund —created from an initial donation from the USC Credit Union and generous contributions from USC Civic Engagement, Ally Bank, and Citi Bank— will enable us to help fellow Angelenos in East and South LA. The Allied Impact Fund is the first step in USCCU’s continued and long-term investment in East and South LA communities via financial tools, literacy, and accessibility.

Through our partnership, we will issue micro-grants to community organizations that provide direct relief to small business owners, wage workers, and individuals in need of essential assistance such as housing meal delivery, and cash aid.

We are proud to stand together to aid the efforts of those ensuring no Angelino gets left behind. If you are in a position to help, we invite you to join us. Any donation is welcome, even if the amount is small, the impact can be massive.

All gifts made through the donation portal will fund the emergency relief efforts in response to COVID-19. Should any dollars remain in this fund following the COVID-19 response efforts, they will be used for ongoing community development in East and South Los Angeles.
