Denali is invested in the communities we serve to build a better future for all. Our Social Responsibility Committee allows us to be actively involved in our communities through donations and volunteerism. As your local credit union we strive to make a difference.

Donation guidelines

Denali supports:

  • Community and public service
  • Health- and education-related
  • Arts and humanities
  • Youth and senior citizens
  • Non-profit groups which fall under the Select Employer Group (SEG) listing and do not fall under any of the categories noted below.

Applicants must be non-profit organizations and be designated as tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3). Applicants must show how Denali's donations will benefit the host community. See the list of groups we currently sponsor »

Denali DOES NOT support the following groups and activities:

  • Individuals or sports teams
  • Religious activities or organizations
  • Political organizations or campaigns
  • Organizations primarily involved in lobbying
  • Event organizers where the majority of the funds are directed to the event rather than the non-profit organization intended to benefit from the event. In that case, it is better that the non-profit come directly to Denali for a donation.
  • Travel

Applicants should submit an online Donation Request Form. Credit union members are encouraged to submit requests, but donation requests are not restricted to members.
