Purpose 

Credit unions are different from other financial institutions because of their unique sense of purpose - People Helping People. Helping people and their communities has inspired the credit union mission since the beginning. Through CO-OP PURPOSE, CO-OP Financial Services connects credit unions to other purposeful, valued and respected organizations that align with our joined vision.

Miracle Match Program

CO-OP has supported Children's Miracle Network Hospitals® (CMN Hospitals) since 1996, and in 2008 created the Miracle Match Program. This philanthropic matching program encourages credit unions to create and participate in fundraisers that benefit their local CMN Hospitals. We are pleased to have donated more than 40 million dollars via the Miracle Match program since its inception through the combined efforts of credit unions and CO-OP. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed nearly every aspect of life, including fundraising. Now more than ever, children and their families need the CMN Hospitals that count on credit unions to provide essential donations to support research and patient care.

Financial Education for Youth

CO-OP is proud to partner with the National Credit Union Foundation and the RMJ Foundation, both of which offer financial education resources and tools for credit unions to assist members, with a special focus on youth. The work of these organizations is especially crucial while schools are closed and parents are searching for ways to supplement home learning.
