We are motivated and inspired by people like you who are making great things happen. Where we can,
we’d love to lend our support! We are seeking community partners who we can help in a meaningful way and who,
in return, will be advocates for Interior Savings, committed to helping our credit union achieve success and further
our community impact objectives. Our Community Partner Sponsorships range anywhere from $1,001 to $15,000 depending on the event,
the positive impact on the community and the opportunities for us to build our business, because the stronger we are, the more we can keep giving back.
Each year we receive hundreds of requests for support from deserving community groups. Regrettably, we can’t support them all, so we’ve created
some guidelines that help us determine if a project is a strong fit.

Community-based non-profit, volunteer, or charitable organizations.
