Corporate Giving Program: Review Process
Fremont Bank accepts applications for a corporate donation on an on-going basis throughout the year. All applications are reviewed by the Donations Committee once a month. Careful, thoughtful attention is given to each and every request.
The complete donation request package must be received by the 20th of the month to appear on the agenda of the upcoming Donations Committee meeting. Each applicant and/or Fremont Bank contact (client, shareholder or associate) will receive notification of the status of the request, and when payment will be available, if applicable, within two weeks after the review period.
Sponsorship-related checks are usually disbursed the month before the event or the month of the event, depending on when the event is scheduled to occur during the month.
Funding is generally awarded on a yearly basis with the expectation that it will be expended within one year. A corporate donation granted one year does not make an organization automatically eligible the following year. Organizations must reapply for funding consideration for each request.
Fremont Bank makes every effort to assist as many qualifying nonprofit organizations as possible. Due to the number of requests for funding we receive, we reserve the right to decline any application at our discretion. Organizations whose requests cannot be fulfilled one year are welcomed to apply the following year.
