Online Fundraising Platform Makes it Easier than Ever to Support CU4Kids

For credit unions, every season is the season of giving. Not only do they give back to their members and communities every day through exceptional service, amazing rates, and lower fees, but they regularly offer critical support to community organizations and charities, such as CU4Kids.

With the Northwest CU4Kids online fundraising platform — created last fall by NWCUA in collaboration with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and Frontstream — it’s never been easier to raise money for the Movement’s charity of choice.

The user-friendly platform provides a space for credit unions, credit union Chapters, and individuals to create their own customized fundraising pages, where they can add text, images, and more. There are also a variety of online fundraising ideas and toolkits available to get the creative juices flowing. Each CMN hospital has its own custom page, featuring its current Miracle Child’s story and photos.

CMN has generously offered to cover any and all credit card fees incurred through fundraising efforts on the platform in 2021, meaning every single penny raised goes straight to the cause — no deductions to account for.

“So far, we’ve seen some great fundraising take place on the platform, and we will be excited to see even more!” said Holly Miller, NWCUA Director of Programming. “This online space is the perfect environment for credit unions to come together and start a little friendly competition on who can ‘out-fundraise’ the other for a great cause.”

Credit unions are encouraged to customize their page and share it with their staff, members, and others who want to contribute to this important cause. An activation toolkit is available online to assist with building a fundraising page.
