Credit unions are passionate about serving their members and about making an impact in the community. They volunteer for local charities and participate in causes to make a difference. Two organizations we support in Tennessee are Inheritance of Hope and CU4Kids.
Inheritance of Hope
1 in 20 children loses a parent before turning 16. Inheritance of Hope was created to inspire hope in young families facing the loss of a parent. The goal is to provide them with a legacy building experience they will remember forever. The 501(c)(3) charity was founded by Kristen and Deric Milligan following several years of coping with the challenges of raising three young children while battling Kristen’s terminal liver cancer diagnosis.
Sadly, Kristen lost her courageous bout with cancer in 2012, but her legacy lives on as Inheritance of Hope uniquely serves families like her own from more than 47 states with resources and relationships for the particular challenges they face.
Credit unions and the companies they work with from Tennessee and beyond are coming together to raise funds to host a retreat for 30 families in Tennessee.
