It matters where you bank.
In 1952, the U. of C. Federal Credit Union was founded with 12 members and less than $100 in assets to serve the financial needs of CU Boulder staff and faculty. Today, Elevations is an award-winning Colorado financial institution with over $3 billion in assets and more than 170,000 members. While our name has changed and our credit union has grown, our focus remains on empowering our members with financial solutions and education.
Giving back to the people and places we serve.
We proudly support Elevations Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit that has provided over $1.5 million in community resources since 2010. Elevations Foundation offers scholarships for local students with proven track records and financial need, community grants for nonprofits doing important work, and disaster assistance in times of need.
Elevations believes in the importance of giving back to the communities we serve in many tangible ways. These include grants from our Foundation, event sponsorships, volunteerism, and board membership. We strive to support local organizations and charities to help our neighborhoods thrive.
If your organization is seeking sponsorship support, please submit the request form below at least 60 days in advance of your deadline.
Our Sponsorship committee will contact you via email once your request has been reviewed.
If your organization is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, learn more about the community grants program at Elevations Foundation. The application cycle is open from mid-July through August.
