UMCU Partners with UMHS to Benefit C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital Fall 2013

Fall 2013
A publication of the University of Michigan Credit Union
UMCU Partners with UMHS to Benefit
C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital
The University of Michigan Credit Union (UMCU) has made a
major contribution to the University of Michigan Health System
(UMHS) for the benefit of the C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital
and Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospital. The gift will be used
to benefit the outstanding work done by the hospital as they
continue to be the leaders and best in healthcare by providing
excellence in medical education, patient care and research.
“University of Michigan Credit Union is extremely honored to be
a part of this amazing
collaborative effort
with the University
of Michigan Health
System. As we
continue to serve the
University of Michigan
community we are also
very excited to be able
to contribute to the
amazing work that is
done by the University
of Michigan Health
System, as it continues to pursue excellence in healthcare”,
said Tiffany Ford, President and CEO of the University of
Michigan Credit Union.
The gift, in the amount of $342,000 will also be used in part to
support the art installation, “Ancient Arb I” bronze fossil floor
showcased at the main entrance of the C.S. Mott Children’s
Hospital. The piece is a bronze, terrazzo, mother-of-pearl
and shell inlay created by
internationally acclaimed
artist Michele Oka Doner.
In addition to the fossil
floor installation, University
of Michigan Credit Union
and C.S. Mott Children’s
Hospital are working
together with students from
the University of Michigan
to develop a mobile
application and activity
book that Mott’s patients
and their families can use to
engage themselves while at
the hospital and at home.
“We are very grateful for the support from the University of
Michigan Credit Union. The art installation at our front door is
a favorite with children and adults alike, and we look forward
to the future possibility of the mobile application and book. On
behalf of the staff and patients of our hospitals, I want to say
thank you to the great people at the University of Michigan
Credit Union,” says Paul King, Executive Director of C.S. Mott
Children’s Hospital and Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospital.
UMCU remains focused on serving the University of Michigan
and Ann Arbor communities, and continues to uphold the credit
union’s motto of “people helping people” through community
service, education, outreach and volunteerism.

Credit Union Day!
Help Food Gatherers
This International Credit
Union Day
Come enjoy International Credit Union Day with us on Thursday, October 17th!
Join other members as they Unite for Good by donating canned goods to our food
drive to support Food Gatherers of Washtenaw County. Each UMCU branch will
have donation boxes in the lobby for members to drop off non-perishable canned
and dry goods. While any item is appreciated, Food Gatherers has many requests
for high-protein items, such as cereal, kid-friendly foods, baby formula, soups,
stews, canned meat and fish. Come out and support this great cause during the
entire week of October 14th!
Credit unions continually demonstrate their ability to improve the lives of
individuals, families, communities and countries around the world, and have done
so for generations. As we celebrate International Credit Union Day this October, we
celebrate the theme of “Credit Unions Unite for Good” with more than 196 million
people worldwide to establish credit unions as Americans’ best financial partner.
ICU Day is about creating awareness of credit unions and how they continue to
enhance the lives of the members they serve. ICU Day occurs once a year and
supports one component of Unite for Good: Creating awareness.
