International CU Day Initiative
Rally together on International Credit Union Day and help support the life-saving efforts of local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN) through the "Create Miracles with Your Card” initiative.

On Oct. 17, each time members use their check or credit card, participating California and Nevada credit unions will donate 25 cents to Credit Unions for Kids (CU4Kids), the largest fundraising arm of CMN. The donations will help provide much needed treatment for children who need the most care, as well as raise awareness of credit unions and their commitment to helping people.

Please confirm your participation by Wednesday, Sept. 18, with California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues Manager of Consumer Advocacy Tena Lozano at tenal@ccul.org or 909-212-6057.

Your credit union may also be eligible to double its donation with CO-OP Miracle Match.

Seven credit unions are already committed to this year's "Create Miracles with Your Card” program, including Cal Poly FCU, First City CU, SkyOne FCU, Xceed Financial FCU, California CU, Kinecta FCU, and Wescom CU.

On International Credit Union Day in 2012, four credit unions—California CU, Xceed Financial FCU, SkyOne FCU, and Wescom CU—participated in the initiative and raised $34,000.
