Austin chapter receives CUs for Kids Leadership Award
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (5/1/09)--The Austin Chapter of Credit Unions was awarded the Credit Unions for Kids Leadership Award for outstanding service to the Children's Miracle Network by CO-OP Financial Services during its THINK 09 conference. CO-OP President/CEO Stan Hollen presented the award to chapter President Kelly Atkinson of University FCU. The chapter's credit unions raised nearly $350,000 in 2008 for the Dell Children's Medical Center. The chapter raised $170,000 at an auction party and golf tournament in October, which qualified it for an additional $25,000 from CO-OP's Miracle Match program. In June, Austin credit unions held a raffle and raised another $150,000. CO-OP matched $520,000 in financial support for Credit Unions for Kids last year, said Hollen. In 2008, CO-OP and its member credit unions raised $250,000 with the Miracle Match program. In the program, CO-OP matches up to $1 million in funds raised by credit unions each year. Since 2008, CO-OP and 70 participating credit unions have presented $1.5 million to Children's Miracle Network through the Miracle Match program. This year, more than 110 credit unions are participating in the program. Collectively, credit unions are the third-largest contributor to Children's Miracle Network, raising more than $9 million in 2008.
