Oregon Credit Unions Receive Miracle Match to Benefit Local Children's Hospital

Portland, Ore., December 7, 2021 – Unitus Community Credit Union, First Tech Federal Credit Union, and iQ Credit Union are among the Pacific Northwest credit unions to receive a $10,000 Miracle Match from CO-OP Financial Services. Through the Miracle Match program, CO-OP Financial Services generously matches up to 100% of money raised through the annual Credit Union 4 Kids (CU4Kids) fundraiser, up to $10,000. The match is open to all credit unions, chapters, and leagues raising funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Including the CO-OP Match, Unitus Community Credit Union, First Tech Federal Credit Union, and iQ Credit Union provided $730,000 to OHSU’s Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, the first full-service children's hospital in the Pacific Northwest with full-spectrum pediatric care. The 2021 CU4Kids Fundraising Campaign, held throughout September at participating credit unions and on KATU-TV, solicited donations from community and credit union members alike. At the campaign’s end, Pacific Northwest credit unions raised more than $320,000 through CU4Kids.

“We’re proud of our incredibly collaborative industry coming together every year to fundraise for Doernbecher. They’re the lifeline for our local kids that desperately need specialized care and we are so fortunate Doernbecher is close and ready when we need them,” said Eric Petracca, President and CEO of iQ Credit Union.

“Thankful doesn’t begin to express our gratitude for all of the credit unions that come together each year to raise funds for the life-saving work being done by Doernbecher,” said Steven Stapp, President and CEO of Unitus Community Credit Union. “We’re especially thankful for the Doernbecher hospital staff who work day in and day out to ensure struggling and seriously ill children are safe, comfortable, and receiving the best care the Pacific Northwest can offer.”

Understanding that every child has unique needs, OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital offers the region’s greatest number of children’s specialists working together in one location and broadest range of pediatric treatments to more children in more places than any other hospital in Oregon or Southwest Washington. Unitus Community Credit Union, First Tech Credit Union, and iQ Credit Union are honored to uplift this vision with the helping hands of their fellow Pacific Northwest credit union partners.
