Americas CUs raise 8.7M in 2010 for kids hospitals
SALT LAKE CITY (3/15/11)--Credit Unions for Kids announced today that it raised $8.7 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals in 2010. That marks a 5% increase over fundraising in 2009, and positions credit unions as a top three contributor to the charity. Credit Unions for Kids is a collaborative effort in the credit union community that raises money for children's hospitals. Since 1996, the program has raised more than $80 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals throughout the U.S. In 2010, Texas was No. 1 in statewide fundraising, generating nearly $1.37 million in contributions. The top five states and the amount raised by credit unions include:
* Texas, $1,367,597; * California, $1,003,530; * Oregon, $924,972; * Arizona, $479,674; and * Georgia, $479,235.
Portland, Ore., was once again the top individual market, raising $726,395. The top five individual markets include:
* Portland, $726,395; * Phoenix, $432,824; * Austin, Texas, $417,411; * Atlanta, $396,934; and * Los Angeles, $365,641.
"2010 was a remarkable year for our credit union partners," said John Lauck, president/CEO of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. "Their performance speaks volumes about the character of those in the movement. Given the unprecedented challenges facing the industry, credit unions could have cut back on their fundraising, but instead they grew the program and in turn helped our hospitals impact the lives of more kids and their families." In 2011, credit unions will have three new national campaigns from which to support their local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. The Change a Child's Life coin collection campaign, which kicked off March 1 and concludes April 30, is still accepting orders for free kits to help facilitate fundraising efforts. Use the link for more information. The other two campaigns include Miracle Jeans Day, Aug. 1-Sept. 14, and the Holiday icon program, Nov. 1-Dec. 31.
