We Help When Others Won't
American United FCU and the American United Charitable Foundation are active supporters of our local communities which offer opportunities to communicate our key core values. We Help When Others Won’t by serving our communities through financial donations, event sponsorships, and other community partnerships.
The American United Charitable Foundation is organized to seek out organizations with small budgets and direct impact to the Veteran, Tribal, and Underserved communities. Organizations applying for financial support need to submit the below application, clearly stating their mission, how the donation will be used, and the population that the donation will impact.
Requests for each calendar year will be reviewed in November. Please submit requests by October for the following calendar year.
American United Federal Credit Union proudly sponsors various community events throughout the year which provide us a platform to communicate the benefits our credit union has to offer each community. These may include school sports teams, chamber of commerce or city events, or other programs designed to provide a benefit to both the attendees and the sponsors.
Requests will be reviewed at the end of each month. All requests will be considered but not all will meet budgetary constraints.
About Our Financial Support Policy
Typically, American United FCU seeks out organizations with small budgets and direct community impact. Not all requests can be honored, and those that are not submitted at least 8 weeks in advance, that are incomplete, or that are to benefit individuals or for profit organizations will not be considered.
American United FCU has developed a set of guidelines to help evaluate support and donations. We reserve the right to deviate from these guidelines as necessary to meet the ongoing goals of American United FCU.
We focus our community investment on:
- Youth Sports & Education
- Arts and humanities
- Community or public service
- Health and education
Request for support will not be considered from:
- Political or religious organizations;
- Projects which degrade, exclude or offend minority community groups;
- Projects that create environmental hazards;
- Programs that uphold principles of respect that are any less than those we apply to our own people;
- Programs that involve the taking of unnecessary risks, and/or which may put public safety at risk;
How to Apply
Organizations applying for a donation needs to submit a completed Donation Request Application. When completing the Donation Request Application, make certain the following items are clearly identified:
- Description of the organization & purpose;
- How will our donation be used to support your organizations cause;

All organizations who meet our guidelines are eligible to receive a donation. However, organizations may only apply for and receive a donation once every 12 months.
Each organization approved for a donation will be notified through email and will be forwarded a W9 form that will need to be completed before the donation can be processed. Organizations may be asked to display literature or share information on behalf of American United FCU.
