Each time you use your KCT-issued credit or debit card on Thursday, Oct. 20th, we will turn your every day purchases into extraordinary events. KCT Credit Union will donate 25 cents with each swipe to Ann & Robert H. Lurie Hospital of Chicago. Like all Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals donations, funds raised locally will stay in the community to support the hospital’s greatest needs, which include life-saving research, treatments, equipment, and charitable care. The funds raised help to light the way in helping sick children and their parents navigate through stormy days.
Last year we helped raise more than $2,200 and CO-OP Financial Service's Miracle Match program matched our donation for a total of $4,400 for our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. CO-OP will again be matching this year's donation.

About Credit Unions for Kids
Credit Unions for Kids, in cooperation with local credit unions, have worked diligently with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to make hard times easier for sick children and their parents since 1996. In that time, over $140 million has been raised. The much-needed funds come from collaboration with local credit union chapters, industry leagues/associations, and their business partners to contribute to the health of children in the 156 CMN Hospitals throughout the U.S. Fundraising takes many shapes, such as golf tournaments, 5Ks, wine auctions, online giving, or the sale of paper balloon Making Miracles icons. In 2016, over 3000 credit unions raised almost $11 million for the kids. CU4Kids ranks third among CMN Hospitals corporate partners in terms of generosity. Contributions fund new facilities, groundbreaking treatments, and vital research as well as special patient needs. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals benefit more than 10 million children each year.
