CO-OP Miracle Match results in $3M for CMN Hospitals
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (1/28/14)--More than 150 credit unions participating in CO-OP Miracle Match in 2013 raised $3 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals--$1 million of which was matching funds provided under the CO-OP Financial Services 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, president/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."
 
Credit Unions for Kids is the brand under which America's credit unions, chapters, leagues/associations and business partners raise funds for 170 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Credit unions are the third-largest sponsor of CMN Hospitals and since 1996 have contributed over $110 million dollars to help fund  programs and services ranging from research and training to the acquisition of new life-saving equipment.
 
Credit unions interested in applying for match grants in 2014 under the CO-OP Miracle Match program may do so by using the link below.
 
The credit union fundraisers benefited 98 different children's hospitals in 34 states in 2013. More than 100 fundraisers were first-time events by the sponsoring credit union and nearly half of the participating credit unions-- about 70--were new to the CO-OP Miracle Match program.
 
CO-OP Financial Services also made donations of $164,500 to CMN Hospitals in 2013. The donations were made through event sponsorships, such as credit union-hosted golf tournaments, and at its own THINK Conference, held last year in Chicago.
 
CO-OP Financial Services has also developed an add-on transaction that allows credit union members to make a contribution to CMN Hospitals at ATMs directly "driven" by CO-OP for its clients.
