CO-OP Miracle Match offering 1M to hospital fundraisers
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (6/3/10)--CO-OP Financial Services is raising funds for Children’s Miracle Network--and is looking for credit unions and associations to add to their total. CO-OP’s program awards $1 million in matching funds annually for Credit Unions for Kids events, proceeds of which go to local children’s hospitals in the Children’s Miracle Network. “The CO-OP Miracle Match program is a natural extension of the people-helping-people model of the credit union movement,” said Stan Hollen, president/CEO of CO-OP Financial Services, and a member of the Children’s Miracle Network’s Board of Governors. “We are looking forward to working with industry partners to do even more in 2010 to help children.” Generations FCU raised $30,000 and received $10,000 through CO-OP Miracle Match with its Annual Credit Unions for Kids Bowl-a-Thon, held Nov. 18, 2009 (in the 2010 program year). Greater Texas FCU raised $20,000 and added $10,000 with CO-OP Miracle Match funds through its Dec. 4, 2009 World’s Finest Chocolate Candy Sales Event. The funds from both events benefit CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Children’s Hospital in San Antonio. During the 2009 program year, by comparison, the top fundraising credit union produced $45,000 in funds, to which $10,000 in miracle match funds were added. CO-OP Miracle Match is managed by CO-OP Financial Services on behalf of its 3,000 member credit unions. The credit union industry is currently the third largest contributor to Children’s Miracle Network. For more information, use the link.
