ONTARIO, Calif. (8/12/13)--The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues--with support from CO-OP Financial Services--are encouraging their member credit unions to celebrate International Credit Union Day--Oct. 17--by helping CU4Kids create miracles.
Each time credit union members use their check card or credit card Oct. 17, participating credit unions will donate 25 cents or any self-determined amount to Credit Unions for Kids, the nationwide alliance of credit unions supporting Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Funds will benefit local hospitals belonging to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
Participating credit unions may be eligible for a CO-OP Miracle Match from the Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.-based CO-OP Financial Services, depending on their level of CO-OP relationship.
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 Children's Miracle Network Hospital fundraisers.
All matching funds go directly to the local Children's Miracle Network Hospital, benefiting sick children in the local community. Applications for the match are due Sept. 30. Use the link.
