Employee sponsored Jean Day has raised over $25,000 since May of 2012 in support of local organizations lending a helping hand in our community.
Since 2012, DFCU employees have come together to go casual for a cause on the last Friday of each month, each donating a minimum of $5.00 to dress down. The donations collected are donated to an organization or cause that has been selected for the month. The Board of Directors then generously matches whatever funds are raised for the day. Organizations to receive Jean Day donations in the past include the North Country Cancer Fund, Elmore SPCA, the Foundation of CVPH, and Plattsburgh Noon Kiwanis.
If your organization is interested in applying to receive a DFCU Jean Day donation, please view the Jean Day Application and guidelines (PDF).
In addition to sponsorsing the Banzai program, DFCU partners with multiple schools in the area to provide interactive classroom presentations to students of all ages. We also often sponsor programs offered by area schools such as the Backpack Program, which provides students with a backpack filled with staple foods for the weekend, and support after-prom parties among other initiatives.
At DFCU, we believe that supporting local organizations is an essential part of business. Staying true to the community and service-oriented philosophies we live by; DFCU supports many local organizations and fundraisers through sponsorships or donations. When requesting a donation, please note that requests are gone over once a month, so please allow enough time for review.
