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. If you are interested in seeking a donation, please review the following guidelines before submitting your request. First Financial Credit Union reserves the right to consider each donation request on a case-by-case basis. Requests should be submitted no later than 30 days prior to deadline and please allow at least two weeks for review and processing. 

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:

  • Health
  • Education
  • Community Service
  • Youth Activities
  • Cultural
  • Special Community Projects
  • Environmental
  • 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:

  • Individuals
  • Religious groups
  • Political parties, candidates or causes
  • Incomplete applications
  • Requests with less than proper notification
  • Many factors are included in the evaluation of these proposals, which are reviewed by a committee once per week. If more information about a specific organization is needed, a representative of First Financial will contact the organization. 

First Financial will make every effort to process your request in a timely manner. We will contact all organizations regardless of approval or denial of your request. 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.
