Match Program Can Double Your Donation!
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 fundraisers. 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.
Join Shop for Miracles and help your League win $25,000 for your
local CMN Hospital!
CO-OP Financial Services has just announced a new contest and
we're hoping you'll participate!
What is the Shop for Miracles
CO-OP will award two State Leagues/Associations with a $25,000
donation made on their behalf to CMN Hospital(s) in their state(s).
Winning Leagues/Associations will be selected as follows:
- The state with the most credit unions participating in Shop for
- The state with the highest percentage (%) of credit unions
participating in Shop for Miracles
What is Shop for
Shop for Miracles is a month-long Credit Unions for Kids
fundraiser and member awareness campaign. Credit unions are asked
to sign up for Shop for Miracles and make a donation on
International Credit Union Day (October 20, 2016) on behalf of
their debit/credit card users.
The suggested donation is $0.25 per member, but the amount is at
the discretion of the credit union. CO-OP Financial Services will

Miracles and apply for a match.
