150 CUs Participated in 2013
Credit unions raised $3 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals in 2013, of which $1 million was matched by CO-OP Financial Services' "Miracle Match" program. The funds benefited 98 different children’s hospitals in 34 states.
Nearly 70 new credit unions joined the program.
"CO-OP Financial Services established CO-OP Miracle Match on behalf of our member credit unions in 2008 as a way to encourage Credit Unions for Kids fundraisers,” said Stan Hollen, CEO of CO-OP Financial Services. “This marks the third year in a row that the combined totals of CO-OP and participating credit unions surpassed the $3 million mark in donations.”
In addition to the $1 million CO-OP Miracle Match program, CO-OP Financial Services made $164,500 in contributions to Children Miracle Network Hospitals in 2013 through event sponsorships and donations at its own THINK Conference.
CO-OP Financial Services is also enabling an add-on transaction that allows credit union members to make a contribution to Children Miracle Network Hospitals at certain ATMs.
