Request Funding

In addition to membership fees, Sun East Charitable Foundation receives contributions from Sun East Federal Credit Union and other private donors.  These funds are entirely designated to education and charities in the community that serve the Greater Brandywine Valley.

Due to an overwhelming request each year for contributions to local organizations, the Foundation board members will review all request letters and determine the Foundation’s level of interest based on its giving guidelines and availability of funds.   The Foundation will consider requests from qualified tax-exempt, nonprofit 501(c3) organizations that support the following purposes as a charitable entity:

  • Advancement of  students such as scholarship or educational events
  • Charities that address poverty, hunger, terminal illnesses, or illiteracy
  • Youth mentor, leadership and development programs
  • Veterans and their families
  • Local Police/Fire/Ambulance companies

The Foundation will not provide funding to the following.

Any charities or community organizations wishing to be considered for a grant from the foundation are to submit a proposal stating the organization’s name and purpose, and how funds will be used. All requests are submitted for approval to:

The Sun East Charitable Foundation
P.O. Box 2231, Aston, PA 19014
