Irvine, CA, July 1, 2024 – Origence, the leading lending technology solutions provider for credit unions, raised $132,250 in its “30 Years of Impact” campaign fundraiser for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals as part of their 30th anniversary celebration.

Origence launched its “30 Years of Impact” campaign in the beginning of June, inviting credit unions across the country to contribute a minimum of $300, with an overall goal of raising $30,000. Origence then matched the contribution to raise $30,000 more, doubling the impact of the collective gift. Donations continued and quickly climbed past the $60,000 total goal. The campaign ended with a total contribution of $132,250. Donors contributed online designating which Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in their local community would receive the gift or opted to spread the support across all Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals nationwide. Top contributors included:

$10,000 Donations

  • America First Credit Union
  • Security Service Federal Credit Union
  • Redwood Credit Union
  • SchoolsFirst Federal Credit Union
  • Mountain America Credit Union

$5,000 Donations

  • Centris Federal Credit Union

“As our ‘30 Years of Impact’ campaign comes to a close, I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to all our credit union partners who participated and helped make this initiative a resounding success,” said Tony Boutelle, CEO at Origence. “Together, we have made a meaningful difference in the lives of children and families through Credit Unions for Kids / Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. This campaign has reinforced our commitment to the principle of ‘people helping people,’ and we look forward to continuing this spirit of giving and community support in the years to come.”

“Nothing is more beautiful than when partnership meets purpose. Thank you, Origence, for not only your donation but also standing shoulder to shoulder with us in our vision: Change Kids’ Health to Change the Future,” said Aimee Daily, Ph.D., President and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “Along with the credit unions industry, together, we amplify our impact, making leaps towards a greater future for kids.”

The online fundraiser ran for 30 days and concluded on June 27, 2024, at Origence’s final day of their Lending Tech Live conference hosted in San Diego, California at the Marriot Marquis hotel.
