Sponsorship Guidelines 

Requests for donations or sponsorships should be made at least one month before the group or organization needs assistance. Requests are reviewed under the following guidelines:

  • Is the event going to attract new business to the community?
  • Will the event be held, or will the money be spent, in the region or local community? Is the project designed to reach a maximum number of people?
  • Does it provide economic value, improve quality of life, or contribute to the social well-being of the region?
  • Does the club or organization conduct or intend to conduct business with the credit union?
  • Are the current staff members actively involved in this club or organization?
