First Tech Federal Credit Union Raising Money for Children's Hospital Colorado

More than thirty years ago, First Tech helped start something great – Credit Unions for Kids; a fundraising campaign benefiting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Today, the First Tech family is the largest single fundraiser for Credit Union for Kids in the country with over $1.4 million raised nationally in 2018 alone.

In 2019, things are bigger and better. First Tech is more dedicated than ever to raise record-breaking amounts for their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The matching gift from the corporation is bigger, the staff is more dedicated, and the members and guests are more involved. This year, First Tech is matching donations 2:1, up to $100,000. That means for every $1 donated, $2 goes to the local children’s hospital in your area – tripling your impact. In the Colorado and Wyoming areas, Children’s Hospital Colorado serves as the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

Although the cause is serious and the impact is powerful, the staff at First Tech has a lot of fun with this fundraiser. Anything from Pizza, Popcorn, and Lemonade for Lunch fundraiser to a paint night fundraiser, and even things like Pies for a Purpose (yes – smack a full pie your supervisor’s face) and Dress Your Manager for a Day – all of these programs have serious fundraising involved to make a bigger impact with the 2:1 match.

“Every dollar counts!” says Rachel Miller, Community Engagement Manager for Campaigns & Special Projects at First Tech. “We’re in the final stretch of First Tech’s Credit Unions for Kids campaign and we’re hopeful to break records!”
