Wichita Federal Credit Union’s Charitable Giving Guidelines
Wichita Federal Credit Union (WFCU) is committed to actively supporting the communities we serve through financial contributions as well as providing volunteer services from our team members. Our organization has chosen to give financial contributions in the following areas:
- Financial Literacy
- Children’s Charities
- Civic organizations and activities
Special consideration will be given to proposals that integrate the above issues.
A minimum of 60 days’ notice is required for consideration. WFCU reserves the right to handle each donation request on a case-by-case basis. Many factors are included in the evaluation of these proposals. Incomplete applications and requests with less than proper notification will not be considered. If more information beyond the completed application is needed, a representative of WFCU will contact the organization. WFCU will make every effort to process your request in a timely manner. 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 or priorities, or that funds are not available.
To be considered for a donation/sponsorship, each of the following must be true regarding your organization, event or cause. Any exceptions will be determined by the Board of Directors of Wichita Federal Credit Union:
