Throughout 2020, the program will distribute a total of $100,000 to non-profit organizations committed to financial literacy, youth development and educational programs focused on science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. 

Since awarding its first grants in 2014, the Delta Community Philanthropic Fund has invested more than half a million dollars in organizations which offer educational opportunities, job and career training and medical and human services support to people in need. 

All applications for the 2020 Delta Community Philanthropic Fund must be submitted via the online portal at www.DeltaCommunityCU.com/PhilanthropicFund before 5 p.m. ET on Aug. 31.
