CO-OP’s Miracle Match Program Can Double Your Donation!

Please note applications are now only being accepted for Miracle Jeans Day (September 13) or Shop for Miracles (October 19) events, and the deadline is September 30.  

 We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but we are now limiting applications to these two events due to the overwhelming response we have received so far this year, because the majority of available matching funds have been allotted for applications/events that have already been submitted. The remaining funds will be applied to Miracle Jeans Day and Shop for Miracles events, both of which are CU4Kids national campaigns. 

We sincerely thank you for your interest and support of our very popular Miracle Match program, and encourage you to apply early next year, as soon as you plan your event. Rest assured, we will accept applications for all CU4Kids events once we open applications in 2018.

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.

Since the launch of CO-OP’s innovative Miracle Match program in 2008, thousands of Credit Unions for Kids events have received nearly nine million dollars in matching funds. CO-OP’s Miracle Match initiative has generated an additional 20 million dollars in new donations impacting more than 10 million kids annually at 155 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in the US. Using the Miracle Match program, credit unions throughout the US are raising not only funds for their local hospitals, but also community awareness of the credit union difference. CO-OP is proud to play such an important role in demonstrating the strength of credit union cooperation.  


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 raise funds for a member Children's Miracle Network Hospital and be conducted under the Credit Union for Kids brand.

Submission of an application is not a guarantee of a match. Deadline for applications is September 30, 2017.

Check(s) must be submitted to the Children's Miracle Network Hospital headquarters in Utah and not directly to hospitals in order to follow proper accounting/auditing procedures and receive the matching funds.


Since 1996, the CU4Kids program has raised more than $160M for children's hospitals. The hospitals provide 32 million patient visits for 10 million kids each year. Read More
