Oklahoma Credit Unions celebrate raising over $4 Million for Oklahoma Children’s Hospitals

Oklahoma credit unions have come together to support The Children’s Hospital Foundation (OKC) and The Children’s Hospital at Saint Francis (Tulsa). Credit Unions for Kids – Oklahoma have been making yearly donations to the hospital since 1997.

“In 1997, Credit Unions in Oklahoma started raising money for Credit Unions for Kids. The first year, we raised $13.98,” said Credit Unions for Kids – Oklahoma Treasure, Teresa Carter. “In 2020, we collectively raised $239,456 for the two Children’s Hospitals located in Oklahoma City and Tulsa. Our most successful year was 2019, when we raised $282,199” Carter stated.

Over the past 23 years, these credit unions have raised funds by hosting golf tournaments, selling candy bars, debit card interchange donations and many other events. These collective events have helped raise over $4 Million, which 100% of donations stay in Oklahoma.

“It gives me great pride that credit unions can come together to raise money for such great hospitals,” said Credit Unions for Kids – Oklahoma Chairperson, Jeremy Daggs. “It creates a community when credit unions can work together to achieve a goal and that goal is to help save lives.”

Dozens of Oklahoma Credit Unions have donated to this cause for the last 23 years and plan to keep raising money to support the two children’s hospitals in Oklahoma.
