Credit Unions Care about Children's Miracles
Tuesday, May 30, 2017 6:50 AM

Credit Unions CareCornerstone-affiliated credit unions should have received a letter regarding Credit Unions Care and Children's Miracle Network announcing an increase in our 2017 fundraising goal, to $1.3 million. We want to encourage everyone to join us in this endeavor to raise money for CMN and awareness for credit unions.

Whether children suffer from common afflictions like asthma and broken bones or fight bigger challenges like birth defects or cancer, CMN hospitals provide comfort, treatment, and hope to millions of sick kids. CMN also provides $3.4 billion annually that supports cutting edge, life-saving research and develops innovative technology that eases pain and lengthens lives.

With CMN's good works and our new goal in mind, Cornerstone staff will be wearing our red Credit Unions Care T-shirts while performing services for and within our communities, which has the added benefit of increasing visibility and awareness of credit unions everywhere. We can all do our part in many ways—the only limit is our imagination.

We encourage credit unions to wear their red Credit Unions Care T-shirts, too, when they collect donations, conduct fundraising events, hold golf tournaments, run CUs Care Donation Dog campaigns in their lobbies, and many other activities to help us collectively reach that $1.3 million goal. 

Get some ideas here.

Don't have a Credit Unions Care T-shirt? Get yours here.

And when you wear your red T-shirts, broadcast it for greater visibility. Just send your pictures to Cornerstone and on Twitter using the hashtag: #cus_care.

Credit unions participating in the CMN campaign can rest assured that all funds raised will be donated to the local hospitals from where the contributions were obtained. In other words, all of the money you raise goes to taking care of sick children in your own community hospitals.

As credit unions hold their various events and collect money they need to complete a Donation Reporting form and send it with their money directly to CMN. CMN will keep Cornerstone in the loop as far as monies collected, so watch our progress! Cornerstone is tracking every contribution for CMN, so those credit unions raising the funds should send them at the end of each month, not just at the end of the campaign.
