At IHMVCU, we have a responsibility to be a good corporate citizen. We’re actively involved in the communities we serve, and we make a difference by giving back and helping to improve the quality of life for others. We’re as passionate about issues, ideas and helping organizations in our community as we are about helping our own members. Why? Because we understand that we only truly thrive as individuals, as neighbors, and as communities when we work together.

IHMVCU will provide resources – both through limited monetary donations as well as staff support – in areas where there are significant gaps in services. Specifically:

  • Human Services
  • Military
  • Youth & Education

Helpful hints

As a not-for-profit cooperative, IHMVCU has a limited annual budget to distribute across many wonderful charitable organizations located in our 42-county membership field. We encourage you to consider these helpful hints prior to submitting your request.

  • All requests for support must be accompanied by the Request for Community Funding form below. Requests must be submitted 60 days prior to the event to be considered. If a request does not have a Request for Community Funding form, it will not be considered. All requests must be submitted digitally. Verbal, paper and mailed requests will not be accepted.
  • Requests are reviewed monthly. All requests will be acknowledged by phone or email within 30 days.
  • If your request includes recognition leading up to a special event, we’ll factor how much time remains before the event occurs into our consideration.
  • If you would like IHMVCU to support your organization in multiple ways/events in one calendar year, please consolidate your requests into one submission.
IHMVCU will make every effort to process your request in a timely manner. A decision to deny a request does not imply that the organization’s program is not needed or worthy, but simply that it does not fall within our Community Funding guidelines or priorities, or that funds are not available.
