3Rivers Credit Union Foundation

3Rivers Credit Union Foundation

The mission of the 3Rivers Credit Union Foundation is to enhance the lives of people in the communities 3Rivers serves through the support of 3 key initiatives: financial literacy, education, and health and wellness.

Since 1935 3Rivers has served this community and is committed to supporting the people and programs that support our mission and move this community forward.

Organizations must be tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and support recipients located in counties served by 3Rivers Federal Credit Union. Funding requests must be consistent with the mission of the 3Rivers Credit Union Foundation and must demonstrate specific goals with measurable results.

3Rivers Credit Union Foundation does not fund:

  • Endowment campaigns
  • Individuals or individual projects
  • Religious organizations
  • Political causes or candidates
  • Operating expenses
  • Reduction or liquidation of debt

We ask that funding requests not exceed $10,000; however, 3Rivers Federal Credit Union executive management retains discretionary flexibility as to the actual amount awarded.

All requests will be reviewed and evaluated on an individual basis by the Foundation Committee. Funding grant meetings will occur on a quarterly basis (February 21, May 15, August 21, November 20, 2020). Application deadline is 30 days prior to each funding meeting. Organizations not receiving a grant may re-apply the following grant cycle. Organizations receiving grants may apply again one full calendar year following receipt of their grant.
