Delta Community Credit Union Philanthropic Fund

The Delta Community Credit Union Philanthropic Fund offers an annual grant-making program which provides financial support to registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations whose purpose is to help families manage their household finances and improve the physical and financial well-being of young people.

Applying for a Grant

Delta Community receives many worthwhile requests, but cannot accommodate them all. Limited resources keep us from being able to support every eligible and worthy cause. More competitive grant proposals will specifically identify programs and projects which assist with the physical and financial education of young people and families.

The application period for 2020 funding is now closed.
