CO-OP Financial Services’ Add-On Option Lets Members Make Donations at ATMs

CO-OP Financial Services and Credit Unions for Kids are spreading the word this month about a popular add-on feature that allows members to make charitable contributions to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals while they conduct business at participating ATMs.

The program, which was first introduced during the holidays, also enables credit unions that offer the add-on feature to apply for the CO-OP Miracle Match program. If chosen, CO-OP will match the donations generated through ATM transactions.

“It is a very easy matter for our clients to activate this convenient charitable-contribution opportunity for their members,” says Stan Hollen, president and CEO of CO-OP Financial Services. “We encourage them to take advantage of this program promptly to maximize giving.”

ATMs directly controlled by CO-OP for its clients are eligible for the add-on feature. Credit unions can participate simply by opening a work order through the client-only Extranet area of CO-OP’s website at www.co-opfs.org. Credit unions may be able to receive the add-on option for free; more information is also available at the website or by contacting CO-OP at 800.782.9042 (option 2) or memberservices@co-opfs.org.

“Credit Unions for Kids is dedicated to helping sick and injured children receive the care they need, regardless of their financial situations,” says Joe Dearborn, senior director of CMN Hospitals. “CO-OP Financial Services has been a steadfast partner for more than 15 years, and they have now come up with another wonderful way for credit union members to participate in this great cause.”

CO-OP Financial Services manages the CO-OP Miracle Match program on behalf of its 3,500-client credit unions. The program grants $1 million annually in matches to Credit Unions for Kids fundraisers. Applications for the 2014 CO-OP Miracle Match program are available now at http://www.co-opfs.org/miracle-match.
