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 Credit Union 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 2017 funding is May 1, 2016- June 30, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. Apply now!

Grant Guidelines

  • Only registered 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organizations in the metro Atlanta, 11-county region and out-of-state branch communities in which Delta Community Credit Union does business are eligible to apply.
  • Projects/Programs must take place within the 2017 calendar year following notification that the grant has been awarded.
  • Unused grants must be returned by the end of the 12-month period.
  • Organizations or programs that have received funding through the Delta Community Credit Union Philanthropic Fund Program must wait 12 months after notification of award before applying for additional grants from the Delta Community Philanthropic Fund.
  • Should your organization be awarded a Delta Community Credit Union Philanthropic Fund Grant, you will need to submit an impact report at the close of your grant period. This document will highlight goals achieved, impact made and the return on investment (ROI) made by Delta Community and your organization.

Average gifts range from $2,000 - $10,000. Priority will be given to organizations that meet grant criteria and align with our mission to help families manage their household finances and improve the physical and financial well-being of young people.

Grant Review Process

Once grant applications are reviewed, all applicants will receive a written response by November 4, 2016. Please do not contact your local Credit Union branch or the Delta Community Credit Union Member Care Service Line to inquire about the status of your application. Should you have any questions, please email the Business and Community Development Department at

Only applications that are submitted via the online portal by the application deadline, June 30, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. will be considered for funding. Emailed, mailed, hardcopy or faxed submissions will not be considered.


To include a broad perspective, the Delta Community Credit Union Philanthropic Fund Committee is composed of employees from across our organization who serve as fiscal stewards of our members' dollars and make community investment decisions on behalf of the Credit Union.
