Credit unions are a top 5 fundraising partner for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals
Miracle Match Program
All of us at CO-OP wish to say “thank you” to the many credit unions that have participated in the Miracle Match program and sincerely appreciate those that continue to participate year after year. We are pleased to have donated more than 11 million dollars via Miracle Match to help children and their families through donations to local children’s hospitals.
To meet the urgent demands brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is committed to ensuring 170 children’s hospitals across North America have the resources they need to care for the most vulnerable kids. The reality is: Kids Can’t Wait … for a cure, for the curve to flatten or for an economic boost. They need children’s hospitals now more than ever. CO-OP therefore encourages credit unions to continue fundraising efforts and we will distribute invitations in April for 2020 Miracle Match program participation.

Dr. Jeff Sperring, CEO of Seattle Children’s, gives a beautiful testimonial on what fundraising dollars can accomplish.
"Children's Miracle Network Hospitals couldn't be more proud to partner with CO-OP Financial Services through the Miracle Match program. The beauty of this program is that it does more and means more than simply writing a check. It inspires, elevates, and rewards the credit union industry's great efforts in supporting local children's hospitals."

What Credit Unions Have To Say
"Mahalo nui loa (thank you very much) to CO-OP Financial Services. From 2014 through 2019, Hawaii's Credit Unions for Kids raised more than $866,000 for Kapiolani Children's Miracle Network (KCMN), including nearly $50,000 from CO-OP's Miracle Match program. The amount raised helped to significantly exceed Hawaii Credit Union League's ambitious "Five in Five" initiative to fundraise $500,000 in five years for KCMN. In recognition of this large donation, KCMN dedicated a rehabilitation services waiting room in its beautiful new hospital tower to Hawaii's Credit Unions for Kids. Fundraising for KCMN continues, with the partnership and generosity of CO-OP's Miracle Match program."
