CO-OP SUPPORTS 'SHOP FOR MIRACLES'

Fundraising Program for CMN
CO-OP Financial Services is supporting Shop for Miracles—a one-day charitable program to raise funds for Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals—through its Miracle Match Program.
The Credit Union National Association (CUNA), the World Council of Credit Unions, and CMN Hospitals have come together for the Shop for Miracles program taking place on International Credit Union Day on Oct. 16.
Each time members use their credit union-issued credit or debit card on that day, participating credit unions will donate $0.25 or a pre-determined amount to CMN Hospitals. To further the cause, CO-OP will provide matching funds starting at dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000 for approved credit union applications.
“Last year we sponsored a pilot program with the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues which resulted in CO-OP providing a match of more than $27,000 to the funds raised by 11 participating credit unions,” said Stan Hollen, president/CEO, CO-OP Financial Services. “In 2014 credit unions across the country have the opportunity to support their local children’s hospital and be engaged in their communities in a very meaningful way on International Credit Union Day.”
CO-OP is accepting applications for Shop for Miracles matching funds until Sept. 30. Credit unions can apply via the CO-OP website at www.co-opfs.org/miracle-match.
