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 of focus:
- Youth/Education - Programs that assist youth in growth and development and in particular, financial education for children and young adults
- Arts & Culture - Programs that cultivate the well-being of humanity through literature, food/drink, music and other fine arts and performances.
When considering charitable contribution and sponsorship requests, we will give preference to 501(c)3 or certified not-for-profit organizations that reflect the Credit Union's values such as responsible fiscal management and productive community involvement.
While sports team sponsorships will be considered, 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.
The charitable contribution and sponsorship request guidelines are not all inclusive, and consideration will be at the discretion of Vermont Federal Credit Union.
