Community livability

We give to charitable causes focused on emergent community needs. We aim to empower individuals to reach their full potential and contribute to the growth of our local economy. 

Have a donation or sponsorship request?

We believe that investing in youth and education, financial literacy and basic needs helps to ensure a strong future for the communities we share and use the following guiding principles for our community giving: 

  • We believe in giving back to those in need. 
  • We give high priority to initiatives that create opportunities for youth and align with our passion for education, financial literacy and the overall well-being of our community. 
  • We seek to serve and actively contribute to the communities where our members and employees live and work. 

Giving guidelines and eligibility

It’s important your donation request aligns closely with our giving guidelines. While we strive to support as many causes in our communities as possible, we’re unable to fulfill every request. 

Requests must be from local 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations or schools in the communities we serve and must have a proven record of effective work. 

All requests should be made at least 90 days prior to the event or given deadline. Responses can be expected within 60 business days from the time the request was submitted. 

Thank you for taking the time to present our team with this giving opportunity!
