About CU4Kids

Credit Unions for Kids (“CUFK”) is a nonprofit collaboration of credit unions, chapters, leagues and business partners engaged in fundraising activities to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network (‘CMN”) and its affiliated children’s hospitals across the country.


Minnesota Credit Unions for Kids (“MnCU4Kids”) is a grassroots program that involves participation from Minnesota credit unions and the Minnesota Credit Union Network (‘Network”).  All funds raised in Minnesota’s CMN geographic market stay local, supporting Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare  in St. Paul, Minnesota.  The purpose of this committee is to support our local CMN hospital, encourage other credit unions and leagues to join in the program, and provide national movement recognition for CUFK


What is the Children’s Miracle Network?
The Children’s Miracle Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping kids by raising funds for hospitals and programs across North America. In Minnesota and western Wisconsin, funds raised by Children’s Miracle Network benefit Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare in St. Paul, Minnesota. Gillette provides specialized health care for children who have disabilities and complex medical conditions, helping them improve their health, achieve greater well-being, and enjoy life.

100% of the funds raised locally benefit Minnesota and western Wisconsin children, regardless of their family’s race, religion, background or ability to pay for services.
