Oregon State Credit Union donations and match total $36,000 for local Children’s Miracle Network hospitals
Oregon-based Children’s Miracle Network hospitals Doernbecher and Sacred Heart will benefit from $36,000 generated through an internal campaign at Oregon State Credit Union. This is the fifth consecutive year that the credit union has sent these matched funds to the Children’s Miracle Network and that five-year total now stands at $141,000.
The Corvallis-based credit union’s staff dedicated $26,000 out of their own pockets to show their support for the credit union industry with the knowledge that they were also making great things possible through leadership’s commitment for a dollar-for-dollar match to the national Credit Union for Kids program. The 230-member team pledged the record amount to the Credit Union Legislative Action Council (CULAC) and Oregon State Credit Union sent the match to benefit the Credit Unions for Kids/Children’s Miracle Network programs at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland and Sacred Heart Hospital in Eugene.
In addition, the credit union was granted a match of $10,000 for the fourth time in the last five years from one of their business partners. CO-OP Financial Services, out of Rancho Cucamonga, California, repeated the grant out of their CO-OP Miracle Match program, which is dedicated to efforts for the Children’s Miracle Network.
Oregon State Credit Union CEO Richard Hein said, “The Credit Unions for Kids effort actually started in the state of Oregon and spread nationwide. Our team has found a way to invest in the credit union’s future and at the same time contribute to the future of kids. I couldn’t be more proud of their generosity.”
