WASHINGTON (1/21/14)--Friday is the deadline for credit unions to submit their donations to Credit Unions for Kids to count toward 2013 fundraising goals.
In 2012, credit unions raised more than $10.2 million for Credit Unions for Kids, a nonprofit collaboration of credit unions, chapters, leagues/associations and business partners nationwide.
The program raises funds for 170 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH) nationwide. Credit unions are the nation's third-largest sponsor of the hospitals, and 100% of every dollar donated goes to support research and training, purchase equipment or pay for uncompensated care for children.
Proceeds are returned to credit unions' local CMN Hospitals, which receive funds quarterly as well as a report of the donor credit unions.
