Northwest Credit Unions Make Recent Donations to Credit Unions for Kids
More than $70,000 recently donated to three area Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
Credit unions across the Northwest continue to provide valuable support to their charity of choice, Credit Unions for Kids.
Recently, several credit unions raised $12,500 for the charity through a program organized by Consolidated Community Credit Union. Consolidated provides mortgage services to credit unions, and for every loan it closed, the credit union donated $50 to the charity, which go directly to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Consolidated is also a preferred business partner, working with the Northwest Credit Union Association’s Strategic Link.
“We are so pleased to be giving these funds to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals,” said Jeff Berard, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Consolidated. “We were able to donate to OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, Seattle Children’s Hospital, and St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital thanks to our partnerships.”
Credit unions that participated in the fundraising efforts include:

In addition, iQ Credit Union recently raised $55,000 for the Rood Family Pavilion at Doernbecher during Spirit Week in September. The credit union hosted themed dress days, raising funds to help complete construction on the pavilion, which will house families while their children are undergoing treatments at Doernbecher.
Dress-up days included Music Monday, TV Tuesday, Miracle Jean Wednesday, Destination Thursday, and Friday Night Lights. iQ reached out to vendors, community partners, and members to show their spirit and raise funds. The credit union’s staff donated $9,826 of the $55,000.
“We could not be more pleased with our members, staff, vendors, and community partners that made it all possible,” said Kelly Schrader, President and CEO of iQ Credit Union.
