About Credit Unions for Kids
Credit unions, fundraising under the Credit Unions for Kids brand, have partnered with Children’s Miracle
Network Hospitals since 1996 and in that time have raised almost $130 million. Today, individual credit unions
throughout the United States collaborate with chapters, leagues/associations and business partners to raise
much-needed funds for 156 CMN Hospitals. Fundraising programs range from golf tournaments, runs, walks
to wine auctions, online giving campaigns and paper balloon icon sales. In 2013, credit unions
raised $10.2 million ranking the movement third among CMN Hospitals’ corporate partners in annual giving.
Contributions help fund new facilities, research, patient services, equipment, special patient needs,
charity care and health education programs benefiting 10 million children annually.
