Fall ATM Fee Campaign

CU4Kids believes the campaign that offers the best ROI to credit unions is donating a portion of ATM Transaction Fees. Two credit unions that currently facilitate this fundraiser raise over six figures each year: Wescom Credit Union and Desert Financial Credit Union.

It's simple to get started: let your Co-op Solutions Rep know that you want to increase the fee on your ATMs (likely by $1), order clings from CU4Kids Resource Library to put on each terminal, and at the end of the year calculate the total transactions by donation amount per transaction and send a check to CMN Hospitals. Finally, celebrate the impact you made with your community!

This Fall, Co-op Solutions is partnering with CMN Hospitals to make this campaign as simple as possible for their credit union clients to participate in.

And have it enhanced through the Co-op Miracle Match program! Email miraclematch@coop.org to learn more.

CU4Kids offers credit unions a variety of easy ways to make a positive impact in their community. Check out the 'campaigns' tab on this website to learn more about what other credit unions find effect.

However, if those traditional methods are not the right fit for your credit union, consider putting together a team that can create a creative initiative specific to your credit union. We've seen bowl-a-thons, cornhole tournaments, gelatin olympics, virtual hot dog eating contests, employee spirit weeks, and more.

Join or create a local committee

Credit Unions for Kids helps to foster cooperation among credit unions. Troy Stang, President/CEO of NWCUA says, "One reason the Northwest Credit Union Association loves CU4Kids is because it allows credit unions to work together in a fun and meaningful way that makes a difference for the hospitals, for the kids, and for their families. That collaboration translates into how Northwest credit unions work together serving their members and communities.”

The best example of credit unions collaborating on CU4Kids is through local committees. Currently 15 CU4Kids committees exist across the US. These are groups of credit union professionals that work together planning events and other fundraising campaigns to benefit their local children's hospital.

If you live in a community that has an existing committee, CU4Kids can connect you to it. If yours doesn't, we'll work with you to create one.
