‘Credit Unions for Kids’ Recognized with Founders Award

Join us in celebrating Credit Unions for Kids (CU4Kids) — one of the largest contributors to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN) — as it is honored with the Founders Award!

This prestigious award, being officially announced this coming Monday (December 11), is presented only on special occasions to a distinguished individual, organization, or initiative that has made amazing contributions to CMN Hospitals that positively impact the lives of ill children, such as time, efforts, talent, and significant personal commitment or a leadership role.

Leaders from our credit union movement will officially receive the Founders Award and celebrate this high honor during the 2024 Children’s Hospital Week from April 8 – 11 next year at Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort in Orlando, FL. All credit unions are encouraged to attend so they can rally together around their incredible work in raising critical funds through CU4Kids.

We want to thank credit unions, business partners, sponsors, and our movement’s individual leaders from Nevada and California for their dedication and support of CU4Kids for so many years!

Our annual Credit Unions for Kids Wine Auction is the largest single fundraising event for CU4Kids, grossing a total of more than $14 million since 2006 (more than $1 million each year for the last nine years) — as well as the annual Credit Union SacTown Run, CHOC Walk, and many other events and initiatives over the years which have supported our local hospitals.

Credit unions nationwide have been proud partners of CMN Hospitals through CU4Kids since 1996, raising more than $200 million. Member hospitals use funds to provide direct financial assistance and community-based programs, allowing patients to receive needed support while putting families at ease when their kids are in the hospital.

CU4Kids improves the health of kids and allows them the opportunity to grow to their full potential — and they couldn’t do it without the generosity of so many credit union leaders throughout Nevada and California.

We have made a transformational impact for millions of kids and families, and we have a lot to celebrate!
