Credit Unions for Kids is a nonprofit collaboration of credit unions, chapters and business partners engaged in fundraising activities to benefit 170 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. One hundred percent of every dollar donated by members of local credit unions benefits Children’s Hospital Foundation, a proud affiliate of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, to ensure that Oklahoma’s children receive the best pediatric care in their home state. 

In 2013, cornerstone credit unions donated $1.3 million to Children’s Miracle Network hospitals through the CU for Kids program.
