A cooperative network of credit
unions that support nonprofit
children's hospitals in the U.S.
You’re always there for your members. And your community.
Credit Unions for Kids (CU4Kids), a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) program, allows you to show how much you care, not only about your members financial health, but also the wellness of families in your community.
You have the power to help children’s hospitals.
Support health along with financial and emotional well-being for families at local children’s hospitals by implementing ATM charitable contributions, sponsoring local hospital events or executing fundraising activities.
Thousands of credit unions across the United States have supported CMN Hospitals since 1996. It is a simple way to help children’s hospitals locally through CMN Hospitals.
When you support CU4Kids, you help create a healthier, happier future for families and communities for years to come.
How you can get involved:
Credit unions provide ATM charitable contributions by allocating a portion of the ATM withdrawal transaction fee to help raise critical funds for local children’s hospitals through Credit Unions for Kids, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals program.
Sponsor hospital events
Your credit union can help in making your community both physically and financially healthy through event sponsorships benefiting the local children’s hospital. You can support by sponsoring a radiothon, dance marathon, extra life game event or other special events that benefit the hospital.
Create/join a committee
Local Children’s hospital’s CU4Kids committees rally credit union leaders together to help raise critical funds. Join a CU4Kids committee to help children’s hospitals change kids’ health to change the future!

Why do credit unions find value from partnering with Credit Unions for Kids?
- Easy to Activate. Credit unions are busy, and often stretched thin on time and resources. We know it's important to make your community impact easy so we provide you with free tools, campaigns, best practices, and a local hospital representative to help you execute your fundraisers.
- Local Impact. While you receive the resources of an international non-profit, funds stay in your local community. Our unique model raises funds for 170 children's hospitals across the US and Canada, so you can count on a member children's hospital being near you.
- Fosters Cooperation. CU4Kids brings credit unions together to make a positive impact in a fun way, which translates to credit unions working effectively when it comes to business objectives.
- Financial Health Alignment. Did you know the #1 reason for financial ruin in the US is medical debt? By supporting your local children's hospital, you're not only providing advanced healthcare, but also more affordable healthcare.
We know your most precious resources are time and money. This is why CMN Hospitals has developed no cost, turnkey campaigns.
We hope these complement your current CU4Kids initiatives and make your lives a little easier! Please feel free adjust the campaigns to best suit your needs.
