Philippines Typhoon Relief Efforts

On Friday, November 8, 2013, Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines, displacing thousands of families. Approximately 9.5 million people are reportedly affected by the disaster. As the Philippines face rising death tolls, landslides, power outages, loss of communication in their central regions and destruction of infrastructure and properties, Luminus is calling upon our members and partners to contribute and donate through the following programs:

1) Extended until December 23rd!

Luminus has partnered with the Ontario Credit Union Charitable Foundation (OCUCF) in raising funds to support those affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. To demonstrate our support, Luminus will commit to matching every dollar donated by our members to the cause*. See official press release here.

Additionally, the federal government of Canada has also set up a Typhoon Relief Fund whereby they will match every eligible dollar donated by individual Canadians between November 9 to December 23, 2013 for the relief efforts. More information regarding the government’s matching program is available here.

2) FREE Remittance Program

Until December 23, 2013, Luminus will waive remittance fees for our members who wish to send money to their family and loved ones in the Philippines+.

*Luminus Financial will contribute a maximum of $10,000 for every dollar raised through this campaign until December 23, 2013. After that, any donations raised will be sent directly through our partnership with OCUCF.

+ The remittance reimbursement will be applied to your account once processed. Only one remittance reimbursement fee per member. For all details please see in branch.
