Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) has received a commitment of $5 million from Credit Unions for Kids that will go toward the hospital’s Helping Hands Fund, which ensures all patients receive the lifesaving care they need.
The extraordinary donation is emblematic of CHLA’s longstanding relationship with Credit Unions for Kids and their mission to create hope and healthier futures for children. In appreciation of their generosity, the organization will receive special recognition on the Champions for Children donor wall in the Marion and John E. Anderson Pavilion. Additionally, the Helping Hands Fund will be renamed as “The Helping Hands Fund, supported in part, by Credit Unions for Kids” for the duration of the five-year sponsorship period.
“Credit Unions for Kids has been a friend to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles since 1996, and we are immensely grateful for their support and generosity,” said Paul S. Viviano, president and chief executive officer of CHLA. “This donation will have a substantial impact on our patients as we continue to provide life-giving and life-saving care for society’s most vulnerable children.”
Credit Unions for Kids is a nonprofit collaboration between credit unions and member-owned financial cooperatives that provide financial products and services. The organization raises funds for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a group of 170 children’s hospitals throughout North America.
“We cannot think of a better way to give back to the local community than to strengthen the children who will shape tomorrow,” said Keith Sultemeier, president and chief executive officer of Kinecta Federal Credit Union. “We are thrilled to be lending a helping hand to the patients of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, which continues to provide the highest quality healthcare for children from Los Angeles and beyond.”
