A Milestone Year for Credit Unions for Kids

USACU is very proud of our relationship with Credit Unions for Kids, a collaborative nonprofit engaged in fundraising to benefit 170 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

This year, Credit Unions for Kids celebrates its 20th year of fundraising – and the $150 million donated to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals)!

From our friends at Credit Unions for Kids:

“We are extremely proud of our partnership with CMN Hospitals and the amazing success of the Credit Unions for Kids program over the last 20 years,” remarked Jim Nussle, President & CEO of the Credit Union National Association. “Throughout our history, credit unions have always played a vital role in giving back to the local community and there is no better example of ‘people helping people’ than what we have done through the CU4Kids program.”

Credit unions under the Credit Unions for Kids brand participate in fundraising throughout the year including hosting golf tournaments, wine auctions, change drives, Miracle Balloon Icon campaigns, Miracle Jeans Day and Shop for Miracles which was held on International Credit Union Day® and raised $500,000 in 2015.

“The passion and dedication shown by credit unions across the country is why so many kids can hope for a miracle today. The funds raised by credit unions directly benefit sick and injured children who are in need and who are deserving of the best care available,” said John Lauck, president and CEO of CMN Hospitals. “On behalf of the 10 million kids treated at our Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals each year, we want to thank and congratulate Credit Unions for Kids for reaching these incredible milestones.”

Credit union donations stay local to fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care. The credit unions legacy of giving and compassion over the last two decades will insure that all children in need of care will have it now and well into the future.
