Seasonal Giving Includes Credit Unions Care

Credit Unions Care

The Credit Unions Care Campaign dovetails perfectly with all sorts of seasonal events, from Thanksgiving to Christmas to New Years and many other observances. You can purchase the Credit Unions Care dogs and resell them, giving all of the proceeds to the Children's Miracle Network, which will directly benefit the hospitals in your community.

Need ideas? Here are just some:

  • Stocking Stuffers
    Credit unions can sell the dogs to their members and give proceeds to CMN. We even made a sign you can print and post in your lobby. See website for details.
  • Christmas Tree Decorations
    Use the stuffed dogs as Christmas tree decorations that members can buy right off the tree. The CU can designate that all proceeds be given to CMN.
  • Gifts from Santa
    Does Santa visit your credit union or holiday party? Your credit union (or the parents of children) can buy the dog for Santa to give to the child.
  • Holiday Decor
    Put people in a festive mood. The Credit Unions Care dogs make great decorations at holiday parties and lunches where people can purchase them. The CU can designate that proceeds go to CMN.
  • Gift Ideas
    Include a Credit Unions Care stuffed dog in your corporate gifts for SEGs.
  • Adopt a Dog
    Give your members the chance to adopt a CUs Care dog. When the member adopts the cuddly stuffed dog, they receive an adoption certificate. See website for details.
  • Charitable Giving to Students and Children
    Many children are hospitalized during the holidays, and some children come from families who simply don't have the means to provide holiday gifts. A visit from your credit union staff with gifts of Credit Unions Care dogs can warm their hearts and remind them that good people do care.
  • Nursing Home or Shelter Gift
    They make great gifts to those in the hospital, in homeless shelters, and to the elderly in nursing homes.

Every Credit Unions Care dog purchased will help sick children. When you purchase the dogs for $6 each (25 minimum order) from Cornerstone, all proceeds will go directly to the Children's Miracle Network. We suggest credit unions give them away or sell the dogs for $10 each.

If you sell the dogs and donate the proceeds to a CMN hospital in your community, please don't forget to complete this quick and easy form, which will ensure your donation gets identified as a Credit Unions Care contribution. This allows credit unions collectively to make the greatest impact in CMN and the community.
