CO-OP Financial Services Miracle Match Program

Thank you for your interest in the Miracle Match program from CO-OP Financial Services! Please read the guidelines below prior to completing an application.

Important: Please be prepared to complete this application in one session, there is currently not a "Save" feature to allow you to finish it at a later time. Thank you.

Miracle Match Eligibility and Guidelines


  • Miracle Match is open to all credit unions, chapters and leagues in the United States. Since program funds are limited, application approval and the match amount will be distributed according to the credit union(s) membership and business relationship with CO-OP, and to chapters/leagues that have one or more CO-OP member credit unions.
  • Hospitals cannot apply on behalf of credit unions, nor can they submit the post-event form.
  • Events must raise funds for a member Children's Miracle Network Hospital and be conducted under the Credit Unions for Kids brand.
  • Events must be a one-time event or three months or shorter to be eligible. For events that are longer than three months, please specify a three-month window in which you would like your event to be matched for (for example, “May 1st through July 31st”).
  • Credit Unions can receive matches on multiple events within the same calendar year. A separate application is required for each event.
  • Fundraisers that CO-OP currently sponsors are not eligible, such as golf tournaments, auctions, etc., regardless of the amount of the sponsorship.
  • Acceptance into the Miracle Match program is at CO-OP's discretion and may be revoked at any time. Submission of an application does not guarantee acceptance into the program.

Guidelines and Deadlines:

  • Applications will not be accepted after September 30, 2018.
  • A separate application must be submitted for each event. Multiple events cannot be submitted in the same application.
  • Chapters and leagues are welcome to apply for any single fundraising event organized and coordinated by the respective chapter or league. Eligible events include, but are not limited to, a golf tournament hosted by a chapter, an annual meeting fundraiser, or a fundraiser which takes place at a chapter meeting. Matches for fundraisers which take place at individual credit unions (such as “Miracle Jeans Day” or “Candy Sales”) will be considered at an individual credit union level and cannot be applied for by the chapter and/or league. In these cases, each individual credit union must apply for a match.
  • CO-OP requires that the donation "match" be recognized in any post-event communications (press release, newsletter article, website recognition, etc.).

If you are approved for a match, you will receive an approval email with the percentage of your match (which can be 100% to 25% up to a maximum of $10,000 depending upon your business relationship with CO-OP), and specific instructions.

  • A post-event report must be sent to CO-OP by the credit union entity approved for the match according to the below dates. Post-event reports will not be accepted from hospital representatives.
  • Check(s) for funds raised from the event must be sent to the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals headquarters in Utah and NOT directly to the hospital(s) in order to follow proper accounting/auditing procedures and receive the matching funds.
  • A separate check must be sent that pertains only to the event to be matched and the amount must match the amount raised and indicated on the post-event report. Do not send a “bulk” check that includes other events.


  • One month after the event, send the post-event report and the check to CMN Hospitals headquarters in Utah.
  • For events that end November 30, send the post-event report and the check to CMN Hospitals headquarters in Utah by December 15, 2018.
  • For events that end December 31, send the post-event report and the check to CMN Hospitals headquarters in Utah by January 6, 2019.

We encourage you to submit your application as early as possible to ensure there are enough funds available to match your event.

For donations made to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals pursuant to the Miracle Match Program, CO-OP Financial Services will provide matching funds pursuant to the program. CO-OP is not a sponsor of and is not responsible for the events hosted by individual Credit Unions/Leagues/Chapters. CO-OP hereby advises any participating Credit Union/League/Chapter that such organization may be subject to Commercial Co-Venturer laws and/or Charitable Solicitation laws of their home state and should seek the advice of local counsel with any questions. If the event involves Games of Chance (e.g., raffles, bingo, casino nights, etc.), by accepting the matching funds from CO-OP, the applicant is required to comply with any charitable gaming laws applicable in its home state.

I certify that the information contained is true and correct to the best of my knowledge. I also certify that I have read and will comply with the guidelines of the Miracle Match program. Finally, I understand that submission of this application does not guarantee acceptance into the program for a match.
