CoVantage Cares

A financial institution that gives away money? That's us. Our CoVantage Cares Foundation contributes to hundreds of organizations that assist the needy and improve the quality of life in our local communities.

At CoVantage, we put our money where our heart is.

At CoVantage Credit Union, we're not just passionate about providing great financial services, we're also passionate about supporting the Wisconsin and Michigan communities we serve. We contribute thousands of dollars, provide hands-on support to organizations that assist residents facing financial challenges, and improve the quality of life and long-term viability of our communities through our CoVantage Cares Foundation. Our Foundation Board of Directors awards grants four times a year and sponsors a Giving Tuesday funds drive in December of each year. In 2021, the Foundation disbursed nearly $430,000 to worthy non-profits in the form of quarterly grants and our annual Giving Tuesday Campaign! Our financial support along with gifts from our generous donors has had significant impact in our communities:

  • Health & Safety, $114,163

  • Community Enhancement, $232,963

  • Housing, $22,177

  • Food, $31,239

  • Education/Financial Development, $23,926

By giving to CoVantage Cares Foundation, you’re making a contribution that is an investment in our future that has the ability to create a ripple effect. Together we can strengthen the capabilities of local non-profits to achieve their missions, which provides for healthier communities where CoVantage members live and work.

For example: Your donation that is used to stock a food pantry will feed local families which contributes to better health, but also allows that food pantry to support local grocers and farmers which, in turn, helps create jobs in our community.
