APPLICATIONS FOR 2014 EVENTS
Launched in 2008, CO-OP's Miracle Match Program is a $1 million
philanthropic matching program that encourages credit unions,
chapters and leagues to create and participate in local Children's
Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH) fundraisers. When you apply and
participate in Miracle Match, the money you raise for kids is
matched, nearly doubling your power to save the lives of
hospitalized children within your community. CMN Hospitals raises
funds for 170 children's hospitals across North America. Funds are
used in many ways, such as supporting research and training, to
purchase equipment, and/or pay for uncompensated care. Local
fundraising is a great way to express community spirit, and build
stronger ties with your members, by staging events that involve
them to raise more funds for this worthy cause.
CO-OP is supporting Shop for Miracles,a one-day fundraising
program to support CMN Hospitals, which will take place on, the
World Council's International Credit Union Day - Oct. 16. Each time
members use their credit union-issued credit or debit card on
October 16, credit unions participating in the Shop for Miracles
program will donate $0.25 or other pre-determined amount to their
local CMN Hospital. CO-OP will provide matching funds for approved
applications starting at dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000. Visit www.cu4kids.org for details.

CO-OP has also teamed up with Credit Unions for Kids to offer
CO-OP clients the option to add a transaction to allow members to
make a donation at the ATM to CMN Hospitals when they conduct
business at participating CO-OP ATM locations. All ATMs directly
"driven" (controlled) by CO-OP are eligible for this feature. This
would make a great campaign feature for a new fundraising event! Click

request for this feature.
Miracle Match is open to all credit unions, chapters and leagues
in the United States. Since program funds are limited, preference
is given to credit unions that are members of CO-OP and to chapters
and leagues that have one or more CO-OP member credit unions.
