About the Delta Community Credit Union Philanthropic Fund

The Delta Community Credit Union Philanthropic Fund offers an annual grant-making program which provides financial support to registered 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organizations whose purpose is to help families manage their household finances and improve the physical and financial well-being of young people.

Applying for a Grant

Delta Community Credit Union receives many worthwhile requests, but cannot accommodate them all. More competitive grant proposals will specifically identify programs and projects which assist with the physical and financial education of young people and families.

The 2020 grant application period ends at 5:00 p.m. EST on August 31, 2019. 

Grant Guidelines

• Only registered 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organizations in the metro Atlanta, 14-county region and out-of-state branch communities in which Delta Community Credit Union does business are eligible to apply
• Projects/Programs must take place within the 2020 calendar year following notification that the grant has been awarded
• Unused grants must be returned by the end of the 12-month period
• Organizations or programs that received funding in 2019 through the Delta Community Credit Union Philanthropic Fund Program are not eligible for funding in 2020, but may reapply in subsequent years
• Should your organization be awarded a Delta Community Credit Union Philanthropic Fund Grant, you will need to submit an impact report at the close of your grant period. This document will highlight goals achieved, impact made and the return on investment (ROI) made by Delta Community and your organization
