By participating in our Miracle Match program, the funds your credit union raises for Credit Unions for Kids is matched, nearly doubling your power to save the lives of hospitalized children within your community.
What is Miracle Match?
CO-OP Financial Services created a
$1 million matching funds program to benefit Credit Unions for Kids supporting local Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. CO-OP will match credit union funds raised to provide medical care, life-saving research and preventative education that helps millions of kids overcome illnesses and injuries.
The Miracle Match Program has two distinct goals:
Encourage credit unions to expand or develop a partnership with their local Children’s Miracle Network hospitals in an effort to raise new, incremental dollars
Substantially grow CO-OP’s $1 million investment to help children’s hospitals serve an even greater number of sick and injured children
CO-OP created this program as a way to increase current donations and stimulate new credit union Children’s Miracle Network fundraisers. It was launched in 2008 at the conclusion of our third year as the national presenting sponsor of the Children’s Miracle Network “Champions Across America” program.
Participation in the Miracle Match program is open to all CO-OP member Credit Unions, Leagues, Chapters and associations. A member credit union is defined as one that belongs to the CO-OP Network.
New or existing fundraising event or activities that are not presently supported by CO-OP are eligible for the Program. Credit unions are qualified to receive one match per market in which they have a branch per calendar year.
Note: Submission of an application is not a guarantee of a match.
