CO-OP Financial Services Raises $191,500 for Charity at THINK 18 Conference

ANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. – A total of $191,500 was raised in charitable and philanthropic donations during CO-OP Financial Services’ THINK 18 Conference here, including $130,000 from Transaction Network Services, Inc.

The $191,500 in donations broke the previous record by a wide margin, surpassing the THINK 14 total of $126,500, CO-OP reported. Of this $191,500, a total of $186,500 is being donated to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, and $5,000 is going to the National Credit Union Foundation.  

“The $191,500 donated during THINK 18 is a testimony to the people-helping-people ethic of credit unions,” said Todd Clark, president/CEO of Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.-based CO-OP Financial Services. “It’s not just a slogan; people in this industry really are committed to the well-being of others.”

“TNS is focused on supporting organizations that help provide a brighter future for children,” said Mike Keegan, CEO of TNS, Reston, Va. “We initially became involved with CMN Hospitals after seeing the passion of CO-OP and its credit union members for this important cause. We look forward to continuing our support of CMN Hospitals.”

A tradition of the THINK conferences, the 2018 meeting included charitable and philanthropic contributions stemming from four additional sources beyond TNS’ substantial donation to CMN Hospitals: 

  • $10,000 through #ShadesUpforKids. A CO-OP initiative, the company donated $10 to CMN Hospitals and the National Credit Union Foundation for every time someone took a selfie with their airplane window shade raised, and then posted to one of their social media accounts. A total of $5,000 each goes to CMN Hospitals and NCUF

  • $3,000 through entry fees to conference golf tournaments held on May 7 and May 11

  • $18,500 from CO-OP Financial Services as a result of respondents taking a Debit card survey, the results of which were reported during the course of THINK 18

  • $30,000 raised by CO-OP Shared Branch locations in Michigan and the Washington, D.C., area, through candy bar sales leading up to the conference
