First Financial is always proactively seeking ways to give back to our communities. We invest generously into our philanthropic partners throughout the counties we serve by volunteering our time and financial support. If you are seeking a donation or partnership with your event, please review the following guidelines before submitting the Donations Request Form below.
Donation Request Guidelines
First Financial Credit Union has been a generous supporter of our local communities and is committed to making every effort to further our involvement within the community and its organizations. Because the requests are numerous, we have implemented guidelines in order to assist as many organizations as possible. First Financial Credit Union reserves the right to consider each donation request on a case-by-case basis. These grants are available year-round and range from $250 to $2,500. Eligible nonprofit organizations must operate on the local level (or be an affiliate/chapter of a larger organization that operates locally) and directly benefit the service area of the facility from which they are requesting funding. Monetary Donations and Sponsorships
First Financial Credit Union will only consider monetary donation and sponsorship requests from non-profit organizations. A contribution is typically used to raise funds for the benefit of at least one of the following purposes:
- Community Service
- Youth Activities
- Special Community Projects
- Other Criteria
First Financial will give priority consideration to organizations that foster growth and development within the communities we support. We can only give donations to organizations that are not for profit and that complete the Donation Request Form.
First Financial does not consider donation requests from the following:
- Religious groups
- Political parties, candidates or causes
- Incomplete applications
- Requests with less than proper notification
Donation requests must be submitted four months prior to the event date. A decision to deny a request does not imply that the applicant’s program is not needed or worthy, but simply that it does not fall within our giving guidelines, priorities, or that funds are not available.
