California/Nevada CUs Donate $174K+ To Children's Hospitals
ONTARIO, Calif. (10/30/13)--Several California and Nevada credit unions celebrated International Credit Union Day on Oct. 17 by helping Credit Unions for Kids create miracles.
 
They donated $174,538 to CU4Kids to benefit local hospitals belonging to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
 
Each time members used their check card or credit card on Oct. 17, the participating credit unions donated 25 cents or any self-determined amount to CU4Kids.
 
"Kids who need the most care will now be able to receive it thanks to the generosity of these credit unions, and their members," said California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues President/CEO Diana Dykstra.
 
The leagues, with support from Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.-based CO-OP Financial Services, encouraged credit unions to participate in this year's event. The statewide initiative was an outgrowth of a 2012 program launched by four California credit unions--California CU in Glendale; Xceed Financial FCU, El Segundo; SkyOne FCU, Hawthorne; and Wescom CU, Pasadena.
 
Some credit unions were eligible for a CO-OP Miracle Match from CO-OP Financial Services. CO-OP provided $23,427 in matching funds. Launched in 2008, CO-OP Miracle Match is a $1-million philanthropic matching program that encourages credit unions, chapters and leagues to create and participate in local CMNH fundraisers.
 
Other credit unions participating included:
  • Caltech Employees FCU,  La Canada-Flintridge;
  • Clark County CU, Las Vegas;
  • Community First CU, Santa Rosa;
  • Eagle Community CU, Lake Forest;
  • Farmers Insurance Group FCU, Los Angeles;
  • Financial Partners CU, Downey;
  • First City CU, Los Angeles;
  • Health Associates FCU, Orange:
  • LBS Financial CU, Long Beach;
  • Kinecta FCU, Manhattan Beach;
  • McKesson Employees' FCU, San Francisco;
  • Orange County's CU, Santa Ana;
  • Pacific Service CU, Walnut Creek;
  • Redwood CU, Santa Rosa;
  • San Mateo CU, Redwood City;
  • SchoolsFirst FCU, Santa Ana; and
  • Southern California Postal CU, Long Beach.
