Cobb-based Delta Community Credit Union has announced a call for applications for its 2020 Philanthropic Fund grant program.

Throughout 2020, the program will distribute a total of $100,000 to non-profit organizations committed to financial literacy, educational programs focused on science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEM/STEAM) and youth development.

“Our Philanthropic Fund is one of the ways we invest in young people, families and the communities we serve,” said Hank Halter, Delta Community CEO. “We’re grateful for the opportunity to support causes which are important to our members and our employees.”

Since awarding its first grants in 2014, the Delta Community Philanthropic Fund has invested more than half a million dollars in organizations which offer educational opportunities, job and career training, and medical and human services support to people in need.

The application window for the 2020 Delta Community Philanthropic Fund opens Monday. Applications must be submitted via the online portal at www.DeltaCommunityCU.com/PhilanthropicFund before 5 p.m. on Aug. 31.
