Community Charitable Giving

We are your Community

We believe it is essential to be involved in our community. Community Resource Federal Credit Union has an employee-run Charity Committee that holds various activities and events to raise money for our adopted non-profits. We select these non-profits for their exceptional service in their field and their broad appeal in our community. We have been working with these organizations for many years, and as a result, we have a close working relationship. All employees are strongly encouraged to participate and they are allowed up to three paid days to volunteer for our adopted non-profits.

Charities may also apply for grants and special project funding from Community Resource by clicking the following link.

Charitable Giving Request Form

Charities must meet the following criteria to apply with CRFCU.

In keeping with Community Resource Federal Credit Union’s giving guidelines, our branches and regional offices specifically support programs focusing on community-based services, homeless reduction, inner-city schools and Veterans/First Responder organizations. We would like to respond favorably to all requests however the needs are far greater than our allocated resources. Therefore, it is not possible for us to accommodate all requests.

We specifically focus on programs supporting the community, homeless, schools, and Veterans/First Responders. Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless, Albany Police Athletic League, Capital Roots and Grassroots Givers are examples of our charitable giving. CRFCU is committed to supporting charitable and community activities in the markets where we do business. Local organizations and groups may provide the local Branch Manager with a copy of your IRS tax letter with your 501 (c) (3) status and a completed 2019 CRFCU Charitable Donation Request Form. All requests must be complete and received at least 6 weeks prior to the event.
