As a cooperative one of our core values is Commitment to Community. One of the ways we show this commitment is to partner with CoBank's Sharing Success Program to provide funding to local projects sponsored by eligible organizations in need.
Donations are chosen by our Board of Directors. Eligible organizations are 501(c)(3) charities serving a public purpose in the local communities within our service territory; select organizations such as schools/counties/municipalities could be eligible as long as the donation serves a public purpose and is consistent with the Sharing Success program guidelines.
To be considered for a Sharing Success Donation you will need to fill out our online application form. Please have a copy of your IRS tax exemption letter showing your 501(c)(3) status as well as any other attachments you might wish to include that will aid your project description.
Applications will be available in Spring 2024.
