Thank you for your interest in our community involvement program. If you have a need that falls into one of our key areas of focus - education, self-sufficiency and public employees & assets – we invite you to submit a request. Here are our community involvement guidelines:
Eligible organizations must be non-profit and tax exempt as defined in section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue code; or a public entity.
Contributions are generally awarded to qualified non-profits located in the communities WSECU serves.
Organizations seeking financial support may be asked to verify that their programs and services are offered without discrimination.
Organization, event or program must be within Washington State.
Please note WSECU generally does not provide support for:
Religious groups for religious purposes
Political lobbying or campaigns
Organizations engaging in discriminatory practices
Trips or tours
If you think you're a good fit, we'd love to hear from you. Please submit your request at least 90 days in advance of your event if it is date-specific. WSECU has a rolling request process; however, please note that we budget each fall for the following calendar year. Ready?
How your request aligns with our three pillars of giving and our giving guidelines. Here's a recap of the three pillars:
Education: This pillar aligns with K-12 schools, GEAR UP and Washington's higher education institutions.
Self Sufficiency: Support in the form of basic needs and stability (e.g., food banks, clothing banks, shelters, etc.), and financial education with free financial workshops is the purpose of this pillar.
Public Employees and Assets: Public employee programs and events as well as our state's public treasures are supported in this pillar.
Location of your organization or event. Please include address, city and a phone number where we can reach you.
Type of request: Any other pertinent details such as date, number of participants, sponsor benefits, etc.
Donation (auction item, prizes, etc.)
Grant (financial support for initiatives and programs)
Sponsorship (events or activities that typically include marketing exposure)
Thank you! We’ll review your request and respond as soon as possible. It can take up to four weeks to respond – thanks so much for your patience.
