CUAD helps raise over $23,000 for Children’s Hospital

BISMARCK, ND (March 24, 2015) — Just as our member credit unions support their community with volunteerism and charitable donations, the Credit Union Association of the Dakotas (CUAD) strives to make a difference in our community as well. That is why we were the presenting sponsor of the Children’s Miracle Network “Hours of Hope” Radiothon that was held in Bismarck, ND on April 19 & 20 on local radio stations KQ94.5 and Y93. As presenting sponsors, the Radiothon was touted as “Brought to you by the Credit Unions of North Dakota” and had continuous on-air mentions of credit unions throughout the two day event.

Robbie Thompson, President/CEO of CUAD presented the donation that was combined with a Miracle Match by CO-OP Financial Services during a live radio interview on Thursday morning. CUAD staff also volunteered to man the phones and take pledge calls. A grand total of $23,250 was raised, and 100% of the money benefits our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, Sanford Children’s Hospital in Fargo, supporting sick and injured kids in our region.


Headquartered in Bismarck, ND, the Credit Union Association of the Dakotas (CUAD) is the professional financial trade association serving 68 credit unions in North and South Dakota with assets in excess of $5.5 billion and serving over 450,000 credit union members.
