CU System
Two CUs rake in more than $30K for youth charities
SAN DIEGO and HERNDON, Va. (7/10/14)--Children's Miracle Network Hospitals on opposite sides of the country were among the recipients of two credit unions' generosity during recent fundraising campaigns.
 
Cabrillo CU, San Diego, raised more than $17,000 to benefit Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego during the $222 million-asset credit union's annual effort.
 
"In our 21 years of fundraising for Rady Children's, this has been one of our biggest years yet," said Senior Vice President Anne McClure.
 
During its Miracle Month of May campaign, the credit union sold paper balloons in its branches, and its employees also hosted a silent and live auction that brought in more than $3,000.

Across the country, in Herndon, Va., Northwest FCU and its charitable arm, the NWFCU Foundation, raised $15,615 for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and for its Ben DeFelice Scholarship fund.
 
In its "Help Us Help Our Kids Car Raffle," the $2.6 billion-asset credit union gave away a 2014 Honda Civic, thanks to a partnership with Sport Honda, a dealership in Silver Spring, Md.
 
"We far exceeded our goal for the event, which was to raise $10,000," said Linda Rogus, executive director, NWFCU Foundation.
 
The NWFCU Foundation awards the Ben DeFelice Scholarship to credit union members who are attending graduate, undergraduate or associate degree programs and who exhibit leadership, dedication and commitment in school, at home and in the community. The scholarship honors the longest-tenured board chair who was instrumental in the growth and success of the credit union.
