RANCHO CUCAMONGA, California – A total of $191,500 was raised in charitable and philanthropic donations at CO-OP Financial Services’ THINK 18 Conference held May 7-10 in Chandler, Arizona, 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. 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 CO-OP Financial Services (www.co-opfs.org), Rancho Cucamonga, California. “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, Chief Executive Officer of TNS (www.tnsi.com), Reston, Virginia. “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:
This THINK 18 charitable giving record coincided with observances during the final session of THINK 18, which marked the tenth anniversary of the CO-OP Miracle Match program. Through this program, CO-OP donates $1 million annually on behalf of its client credit unions to support Credit Unions for Kids fundraisers.
