Miracle Match Eligibility and Guidelines

Eligibility:

  • Miracle Match is open to all credit unions, chapters and leagues in the United States. Since program funds are limited, application approval and the match amount will be distributed according to the credit union(s) membership and business relationship with CO-OP, and to chapters/leagues that have one or more CO-OP member credit unions.
  • Events must be a one-time event or three months or shorter to be eligible. For events that are longer than three months, please specify a three-month window in which you would like your event to be matched for (for example, “May 1st through July 31st”). Campaigns must end by November 30th.
  • The same event can only be matched for two years in a row. After two years, we encourage you to apply for Miracle Match with a new event. You can apply for more than one event per year.
  • Credit Unions are eligible to receive matches multiple new events within the same calendar year. This means you could receive a match on one signature (old) event, plus a match on an unlimited number of new events. A new event is as an event that you have not applied for Miracle Match before. A separate application is required for each event.
  • Fundraisers that CO-OP currently sponsors are not eligible, such as golf tournaments, auctions, etc., regardless of the amount of the sponsorship.
  • Acceptance into the Miracle Match program is at CO-OP’s discretion and may be revoked at any time. Submission of an application does not guarantee acceptance into the program.

Guidelines and Deadlines:

  • Applications should be submitted to CO-OP preferably before the date of the event and before September 30.
  • A separate application must be submitted for each event. Multiple events cannot be submitted in the same application.
  • Chapters and leagues are welcome to apply for any single fundraising event organized and coordinated by the respective chapter or league. Eligible events include, but are not limited to, a golf tournament hosted by a chapter, an annual meeting fundraiser, or a fundraiser which takes place at a chapter meeting. Matches for fundraisers which take place at individual credit unions (such as “Miracle Jeans Day” or “Candy Sales”) will be considered at an individual credit union level and cannot be applied for by the chapter and/or league. In these cases, each individual credit union must apply for a match.
  • Hospitals cannot apply on behalf of credit unions.
  • CO-OP requires that the donation "match" be recognized in any post-event communications (press release, newsletter article, website recognition, etc.).
  • If selected, you must submit a post-event report to CO-OP within one month after the event. For events in November, you must submit the report by December 15th. If all post-event documents aren’t received by CO-OP by these dates, your match will be forfeited.

Application Period:

Applications for 2015 fundraisers may be submitted at any time between October 1, 2014 and September 30, 2015. The final campaign date is November 30, 2015.

We encourage you to submit your application as early as possible to ensure there are enough funds available to match your event.
