WaterStone launches hospital partnership

Wisconsin’s WaterStone Bank has launched a new partnership with Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.

For each Moola Moola Kids Savings account that is opened in 2019, WaterStone will make a $10 donation to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.

“Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin is one of the nation’s top pediatric facilities. WaterStone Bank is proud to partner with them in the mission to make Wisconsin kids the healthiest in the nation,” said Doug Gordon, president and CEO of the $1.9 billion WaterStone.

Women and children are one of the bank’s four target areas of charitable support. Giving to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin helps ensure that children receive outstanding care regardless of their economic standing, providing hope and healing to the children and families in their care.

“We are so grateful for WaterStone Bank’s efforts to raise funds for Children’s,” said Christine Baranoucky, vice president of engagement & stewardship, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin Foundation. “We rely on the generosity of individuals, organizations and corporate partners to provide kids with the very best care. Every dollar makes a difference and supports all of the extra special things that help us wrap around families to ease and prevent the suffering of children.”

Among other services, this includes providing care and counseling for siblings, expressive therapies that help kids and families relax and cope with long hospital stays and research to explore new and better treatments and eventually eradicate disease.

Wauwatosa-based WaterStone has eleven branches in southeast Wisconsin.
