CU4Kids raises $327,213 in WI, $8.7 million nationally in 2011


Wisconsin credit unions, chapters and their system partners – as part of the nationwide Credit Unions for Kids (CU4Kids) campaign – raised $327,213 in 2011 to help children receiving treatment at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Compared to other states participating in CU4Kids, Wisconsin credit unions ranked eighth with this fundraising success.


Last year credit unions across the U.S. raised $8.7 million for the charity. This success was also impressive, establishing credit unions as the third largest corporate contributor behind only Wal-Mart and Costco.


"Credit unions are socially responsible and see their support for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals as a way of serving their communities as well as helping local families," said League President & CEO Brett Thompson.

He explains that one-hundred percent of donations help children in your community because funds raised in your area go to the nearest Children’s Hospital that serves your county.

"I think that’s why so many credit unions are so enthusiastic in their support; many can point to member families that have had children treated at one of the facilities," Thompson adds.

"When you consider that Wisconsin credit unions support close to 3,000 local causes, projects and community organizations, their support for the hospitals – at the level credit unions have sustained for more than a decade – is even more astounding," he continued.


Credit unions for Kids is a network of 170 not-for-profit hospitals in North America that help 17 million children annually, and the celebrities, corporate sponsors and television stations that work together to promote fundraising and education in support of those hospitals.
