Giving Back To The Communities We Serve

Community Sponsorships

Elevating the financial strength of Arizona families.

We believe in strengthening Arizona families through financial empowerment. Apply for a sponsorship or donation.

Copper State Credit Union is committed to helping out the communities we serve in the form of providing sponsorships and donations.

If you have an event you wish to be considered for a sponsorship or a donation, please read the following guidelines. If it falls within these requirements, you may then submit your request using the form below.


  • You must submit your application a minimum of 60 days prior to your event or activity.
  • Your event/organization must take place in one of Copper State Credit Union’s branch market areas.
  • The event or activity must reflect the vision, mission and core values of Copper State Credit Union.

Important Information to Know Before Submitting Your Request

  • The event or activity must fulfill a relevant need and benefit to the community.
  • Only one request per organization will be considered during any 12-month period; and no more than three years in a row, so that we may lend our support to multiple organizations.
  • Only one request per member will be considered during any 12-month period. One person cannot make requests for multiple organizations during the same calendar year. Our focus is to assist with contributions to help organizations and communities continue to do good work. We hope to forge a partnership with many of our community leaders and volunteers. As our credit union is involved in various, different civic and community organizations, we know that many of you are also involved with multiple charitable organizations. Please choose the one that means the most to you and make your submission count.
  • Communication from Copper State Credit Union will be directed to the person specified within the application. This person must be an authorized representative of the organization that is seeking support.

  • Individual or school field trips, clubs, team activities or sport activities, including travel and competition costs.
  • Sponsorship of sports and related tournaments.
