ACCEPTING 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.

Shop for Miracles

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.

ATM Donations for CMN Hospitals

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!
