To better serve our members and the community, charitable donation and sponsorship requests are considered on a case-by-case basis using a predetermined set of criteria. We reserve the right to weigh criteria differently based on the reach of the requesting organization and the impact it may have on our members.
As Evergreen Credit Union is on a mission to be the most environmentally responsible credit union in the nation, we prefer to align our charitable giving and sponsorship dollars with environmentally responsible activities and events as well as organizations and events that promote community well-being or the welfare of animals.
To Be Considered:
Complete and submit the online application. Please fill out the form in its entirety. Forms must be completed and submitted at least 30 days prior to the event. Please allow two to three weeks for us to process your request. You will be contacted by email or phone.
Requests must be made for an organization or event. Requests for the benefit of individuals will not be considered (i.e., school trips, benefit banquets, etc.). Organizations must be nonprofit, however, 501(c)(3) status is not required.
Submitting an application does not guarantee a donation. Charitable gifts and sponsorships of over $1,000 are typically planned one year in advance.
Event or Organizational Criteria:
Organizations requesting assistance may not, for any reason, discriminate against race, color, religion, creed, age, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, or any other legally protected class.
Donations will not be made directly to religious or political organizations.
Ideally, the organization will operate within the credit union’s service area, which includes Winnebago, Outagamie, Calumet, Waupaca, and Waushara counties in Wisconsin.
Organizations’ and events’ missions and goals must fall within one or more of our three core values: environmental sustainability, community wellness, and/or animal welfare. Exceptions may be made for annual events the credit union has participated in before.
