Community Sponsorship Programs

DNCU is your ideal partner for a better future.

DNCU proactively supports the community and people that are the foundation of the credit union itself. We support causes that strive to enhance quality of life in our community and manage ongoing efforts.

Guidelines for Sponsorship Requests

DNCU’s guidelines were developed to ensure that our charitable contributions reach the intended recipients and/or provide a meaningful promotion of DNCU as a philanthropic organization. Our philanthropic activities align with our company values, which is why we adhere to a specific donation philosophy.

In addition, in line with best practices for philanthropy, DNCU gives added weight to organizations which manifest a collaborative approach to solving issues in our communities when deciding whether to fund a request. DNCU donations/sponsorships must meet these guidelines:

  • Benefits our communities in the areas we serve
  • Benefits an organization or program directly
  • Must be a private or public charity foundation deemed by the IRS
  • Does not support any one particular religion or belief system
  • Must support at least one of our philanthropic missions:
  • To promote financial literacy or
  • To improve the lives of youth

In order for us to consider your sponsorship request, this form must be as complete as possible. If we have not sponsored your organization before, a W9 is required. You may attach your W9 directly on our request form. All checks will be made out to the organization listed on the W9.

Please proceed to our Sponsorship & Donation Request form to submit your request.

Please accept our sincere appreciation for your act of generosity and the important part you have played in improving the lives of your neighbors in need.
