Charitable Contribution & Sponsorship Requests

Below you will find everything you will need to request various types of giving from Vermont Federal Credit Union including sponsorships and charitable contributions.

Sponsorship Eligibility Guidelines

While we recognize that there are thousands of worthwhile charities, activities and events that merit Vermont Federal's financial support, sponsorship dollars will be primarily awarded to the following areas:

  • Education - In particular, financial education for children and young adults
  • Community Events - In particular, programs that assist youth, the underprivileged, those with special needs or that benefit the community at large
  • Employee Groups - Events sponsored by related employee groups and associations or affiliates

When considering charitable contribution and sponsorship requests, we will give preference to requests that benefit registered, non-profit organizations and/or reflect the Credit Union's values such as responsible fiscal management and productive community involvement. We will also give consideration to charitable contributions and sponsorships that provide positive public relations opportunities and/or partnerships for the Credit Union.

We will not consider sponsorships for individual sport activities, pageants, religious activities, political activities and/or groups/events that may have a conflict of interest with the Credit Union. Sports team sponsorships will be considered.

The charitable contribution and sponsorship request guidelines are not all inclusive, and consideration will be at the discretion of Vermont Federal Credit Union.

Application Process

For Vermont Federal Credit Union to provide charitable contributions or become a sponsor, requests should be submitted to the Vermont Federal Credit Union Marketing Department as follows:

  • Personalized cover letter with a brief explanation of the request
  • Official Vermont Federal Credit Union Charitable Contribution and Sponsorship Application
  • Submit a minimum of 30 days prior to the date of requested contribution for the event or program needs

Decision Process

The decision process for charitable contributions and sponsorships may take up to three weeks. When considering sponsorships, the cover letter and sponsorship application will be used to determine:

  • If the request falls into one of Vermont Federal's primary areas for consideration
  • If the request reflects the values of the Credit Union
  • If the request fits into the Credit Union charitable contribution and sponsorship budget
  • If the request provides public relations or partnership opportunities for the Credit Union.

Award/Disbursement

Organizations making requests will be notified by the Marketing Department of the final decision. In situations where we have awarded a sponsorship or charitable contribution to an organization, a check will be mailed per the contact information on the application. Checks must be made payable to organizations, not individuals.

Vermont Federal Credit Union Participation

Vermont Federal will provide volunteers, banners and other materials as needed for events. Coordination for volunteers and logistics should go through the Marketing Department.
