Donation Requests

Ocean Communities Federal Credit Union is dedicated to supporting the organizations that enhance the lives of our members and friends in York and Cumberland counties. To request a sponsorship from Ocean Communities FCU, please review the eligibility requirements and donation guidelines below.

Please note that due to the planned merger with Northeast Credit Union, all sponsorship and donation requests will be evaluated by a team at Northeast Credit Union.  Ocean Communities may only participate in a small number of donations and/or sponsorships in 2017.

If Ocean Communities or Northeast Credit Union is unable to sponsor your event, charity, or cause at this time, we would be happy to look into providing an in-kind donation. Also, requests that are unable to be immediately accommodated are saved and will be looked over again at the end of the year if extra funds are made available to the Donation Committee.

Eligibility Requirements:

Donations must benefit a nonprofit organization with tax exemption status under Internal Revenue Service code 501(c)(3). However, requests from schools (public or private) or school-affiliated organizations will be considered.
