Update: 20 for 20 Giveback Campaign Hits Milestone — CU Direct Doubles its donation to CMN Hospitals

Due to the credit union community’s overwhelming response to, and participation in, CU Direct’s 20 for 20 Giveback Campaign during the month of December,  we are donating an additional $20,000 to CMN Hospitals.  The additional donation will be given to the contest’s 4 runner-up hospitals (2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th place hospitals).  Each of the runner-up hospitals will receive $5,000 from CU Direct.  The credit unions with the most votes toward the runner-up hospitals, will be invited to co-present the $5,000 checks from CU Direct.

Since the campaign’s launch on Giving Tuesday (December 2nd), over 80,000 votes have been received for CMN Hospitals across the nation.  We’d like to thank all of the credit unions and members who have participated in making this event a wonderful success!

As a result of this amazing response, and because there are so many deserving hospitals, CU Direct is now donating $40,000 and providing support to multiple hospitals.  CMN Hospitals have been an important cause to CU Direct for the past decade, as we have been an active sponsor of the annual Credit Unions for Kids Wine Auction, benefitting CMN Hospitals in Nevada and California. The annual event has helped raise more than $2.6 million since 2006.

Please visit www.cudirect.com/cudirect20 and cast your vote today for the CMN hospital of your choice.  Vote for your favorite CMN Hospital often — a reminder that you can vote once a day throughout the month of December, until December 22nd.
