San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®) has been a community leader for more than 75 years and is a proud supporter of Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego.
Since 1986, SDCCU has supported many programs and services at the Hospital, which include the Chadwick Center for Children and Families, the Helen Bernardy Center for Medically Fragile Children, Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary Unit events, the Nephrology (Kidney) Division and the Acute Care Pavilion.
SDCCU has also been the presenting sponsor of the Shamu & You Family Walk for Rady Children’s since its inception in 2007. They go one step further with their support of this event by encouraging their employees and customers to participate as part of Team SDCCU. In the month leading up to the Walk, they also encourage their customers and members of the community to purchase fundraising icons at each of their more than 35 branch locations. Over the past eight years, the Walk has raised over $1.6 million for Rady Children’s Hospital.
In 2014, SDCCU launched the “A Week to Donate” campaign, in which they not only fundraised for the Walk, but became the platinum sponsor of U-T San Diego’s Kids’ NewsDay, sold the papers in each of their branches and donated iPads in support of the event’s student essay contest.
Since 2010, SDCCU has hosted a winter toy drive for Rady Children’s patients, collecting more than 1,500 toys, games and arts & crafts each year. Additionally, SDCCU supports the Credit Union SACTOWN10 race in Sacramento, in which their employees participate in the race and also raise funds for Rady Children’s.
The generous support of donors like SDCCU enables Rady Children’s to focus on groundbreaking research and innovative treatments, while providing the compassionate care that is integral to our healing environment.
