Hawaii’s Credit Unions are celebrating sooner than expected after making a significant pledge of support to Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children in late 2013.

The credit unions statewide created a fundraising initiative named “5 in 5” that represented the five-year goal to raise $500,000 for the Campaign for Hawaii’s Children. Now less than four years later, Hawaii’s Credit Unions have surpassed the goal and presented Kapiolani with a check for $536,444.

“It’s a remarkable feat that even the members got involved in donating to Children’s Miracle Network and Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children,” said Dennis Tanimoto, president of the Hawaii Credit Union League (HCUL). “We have 61 credit unions that represent thousands of employees, but more importantly, we represent over 812,000 members throughout the state. We want to express our sincere thanks to all of the credit unions in Hawaii for their role in making this campaign successful.”

Besides the record time, this gift is a record total for Hawaii’s Credit Unions as a group!
