Help SLFCU Raise $200,000 to Keep Kids Learning at UNM Children’s Hospital
During a significant health crisis, a child’s education often stops. If they miss more than 10 consecutive days of school, they are often disenrolled. High school dropout rates for children with chronic absenteeism due to health issues can be as high as 61%. SLFCU has joined six other credit unions to help fund a full-time teacher for UNM Children’s Hospital (UNMCH).
SLFCU is committed to raising at least $200,000 on behalf of the New Mexico Credit Unions Connected Academy (NMCUCA) to help build an endowment fund large enough to provide a long-term teaching position at UNMCH. We are doing this by engaging our employees, members, and community partners with innovative fundraising opportunities.
DOUBLE THE LOVE OF LEARNING IN SEPTEMBER!
SLFCU will match all donations received for NMCUCA in September 2021 up to $5,000.
To help us reach our goal, you can:
- Purchase a Hope Heart for any amount in any of our Central New Mexico branches.
- Donate $20 or more at any Central New Mexico branch and receive a Sandy the Lab stuffed animal – you may also request that the stuffed animal be sent to a critically ill child at UNMCH.
- Donate by calling us at 505.293.0500 or sending a secure message in online or mobile banking.
Your tax-deductible contribution* will help critically ill children keep learning and stay on track toward graduation.
