Our mission is to support organizations conducting philanthropic or charitable purposes for the greater good of our communities.
Credit unions are founded on the cooperative principle of people helping people and joining together for the mutual benefit of our members. The Topeka Credit Union Foundation (TCUF) takes that principle beyond the individual credit unions by joining together to serve the community.
The Topeka Credit Union Foundation was formed in 2004 by a group of local credit unions working together to raise funds and donate to community organizations. Since then, TCUF has contributed more than $300,000 to local non-profit organizations. Through the contributions of the individual credit unions, the generosity and fund-raising efforts of the credit union employees, that fund continues to increase each year.
The Board of Trustees of the Topeka Credit Union Foundation seeks to support organizations in their efforts to better the community through financial literacy, community development, social determinants of health and current critical needs.
Grant applications are accepted July 15 through August 31 each year. All proposals received by the Topeka Credit Union Foundation will be reviewed by the Trustees. The Trustees may conduct interviews or site visits in order to make final grant allocation decisions. The Board of Trustees will retain the final vote concerning all grant applications and decisions.
Grant applicants must be a nonprofit organization or community group which serves the Topeka/Shawnee County area and proposes a program or project which has charitable or similar intent. The Topeka Credit Union Foundation will not fund individuals, scholarships, for-profit organizations, capital projects, debt reduction, fundraising events, political campaigns, conference attendance, endowments, or programs that promote religious or sectarian activities.
