WASHINGTON (1/12/12)--To ensure the funds raised last year by credit unions for children's hospitals are counted in the Credit Unions for Kids' 2011 fundraising totals, Children's Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals must receive checks from credit unions by Jan. 31.
By CMN Hospitals' estimates, only one-third of funds raised in 2011 have been received. Use the link below for a form to send with donations and remittance instructions.
Credit Unions for Kids is a nonprofit collaboration of credit unions, chapters, leagues/associations and business partners nationwide, engaged in fundraising activities to benefit 170 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
The collaboration is also seeking young leaders from the credit union movement to serve on The Young Leaders for Kids Board (YL4Kids).
Composed of individuals who are under forty years of age from credit unions, leagues and industry partners, the YL4Kids Board benefits from a broad spectrum of talent, experience, perspective, and reach within the credit union movement.
The purpose of YL4Kids is to create, grow and inspire Credit Unions for Kids enthusiasts among the next generation of credit union leaders. Applications also are due by Jan. 31. For an application, use the link.
