CU System
CMN Hospitals benefit in 2013 with $406K from Va. CUs
LYNCHBURG, Va. (3/18/14)--Virginia credit unions donated a record-breaking $406,236 to the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals in 2013, bringing their cumulative total to $2,086,236 to the credit union movement's charity of choice.

"Every child deserves the hope and healing of children's hospitals, and each year credit unions all across Virginia are sponsoring fundraisers, big and small, to support that goal," said Viki Frankenburger, committee chairwoman, Credit Unions Care Foundation of Virginia.

The Credit Unions Care Foundation of Virginia was formed in 2009 by Virginia's credit union system to coordinate credit unions' charitable giving, community development efforts and education initiatives.

In 2012, the system raised $214,191 for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

Additionally, the state's credit unions helped raise $483,000 for Children's National Medical Center, Washington, D.C., through their participation in the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run.
