You and your members have more power than you know to help save a child's life.
Each year, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH) hospitals treat millions of sick and injured children. When you apply and participate in Miracle Match from CO-OP Financial Services, the money you raise for kids is matched, nearly doubling your power to save the lives of hospitalized children within your community. It's a wonderful opportunity to express your community spirit, and build stronger ties with your members, by staging events that involve them in raising more funds for this worthy cause.
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 CMNH fundraisers. All matching funds go directly to the local Children's Miracle Network Hospital, benefiting sick children in the local community. Your participation also enables you to create partnerships with neighboring credit unions to enhance your ability to implement new fundraising initiatives.
In 2012, 155 credit unions participated in Miracle Match. Together, they raised $2,246,657.30, which was matched by $999,967.68 from CO-OP. Including the $32.32 difference donated as a lump sum to CMNH, this provided a total donation of $3,246,657.30.
No matter how much money you raise, Miracle Match from CO-OP increases the funds for life-saving essentials. More than 150 credit unions participated last year. We hope you'll join us in making a difference, too.
