About CU4Kids

Credit Unions for Kids is a nonprofit collaboration of credit unions, chapters, leagues/associations and business partners from across the country, engaged in fundraising activities to benefit 170 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Adopted as our movement’s charity of choice, credit unions are the 5th largest sponsor of CMN Hospitals. Since 1996, CU4Kids has raised over $165 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

One hundred percent of every dollar donated by members of the credit union movement goes back to the CMN Hospital which serves your community, your members. Each year, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals:

  • Provide $3.4 billion in charity care
  • Support cutting edge, life-saving research
  • Develop new, innovative technology which eases pain and lengthens lives
