Chain of Hearts fundraiser coming soon!



Links kits for the February Chain of Hearts fundraiser supporting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals are being shipped in December to credit unions that donated to the charity this year while other credit unions will receive an invitation to participate and order form for supplies.


The paper links for which the campaign is named are sold to members at credit unions' lobby counters and drive-ups and bear the names of members’ loved ones. The kits also include paper heart icons, a Chain of Hearts guide, information about your local hospital and patient stories.


Please call your local hospital representative if you don’t get your kit by the end of December, or if you'd like to sign up. And don't forget to follow your local hospital on social media as the campaign unfolds.


Credit unions may also choose to order other types of paper icons that can be sold to members during the holidays and beyond.

Get counted for your efforts in 2013!


Any funds your credit union has raised for your local hospital in 2013 should be sent in on or before Jan. 24, 2014 so that it is counted as part of Wisconsin credit unions' 2013 fundraising total.

Please send this form (mailing instructions included) along with your check. While your donation is sent to the hospital network's national headquarters, every dollar you donate is returned to the local hospital serving your community.


The Chain of Hearts has typically accounted for the bulk of the funds that Wisconsin credit unions raise annually for the charity as part of the nationwide Credit Unions for Kids® program. The Wisconsin credit union system raised $542,919 in 2012 to help local children served by the hospitals.


Credit Unions for Kids® is Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ third largest U.S. sponsor (eclipsed only by Walmart and Costco). Credit unions nationwide raised more than $10.2 million in 2012, and over $110 million since 1996.
