Union Home Foundation Grant & Sponsorship Guidelines

Grant Guidelines

The Union Home Foundation limits grants to our four key funding areas and to organizations defined as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code. For grants from the corporation to sponsor special events, please apply under our sponsorship pages here. Typically, grants are for one year and range from $1,000-$10,000 (higher contributions may be granted if the program is an exceptional fit with the corporate business or giving strategies).

Note: the Union Home Foundation does not provide grant support to individuals or individual fundraising efforts, political campaigns/parties, religious organizations, groups that discriminate on the basis of age, religion, color, race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or national origin, disease related causes (special exception may be made if the event advances our corporate purpose) and individual sports teams, clubs, activities.

Corporate Sponsorship Guidelines

Union Home Mortgage is happy to consider opportunities to be a part of your upcoming event/program. In order to allow us time to review your proposal, all applications must be submitted at least six (6) weeks in advance of your event.

Please note: it is UHM’s policy to contribute to activities, organizations and causes if that organization or cause aligns with our corporate and/or foundation, supports the involvement of UHM employees (either at a board, advisory or volunteer level) or if a team of over 10 UHM employees may be participating in the event. Organizations may only receive one sponsorship per year.

Only organizations that are 501(c)(3) status and benefit the local communities in which our business resides are eligible. UHM does not contribute to individuals or individual fundraising efforts, political campaigns/parties, religious organizations, groups that discriminate on the basis of age, religion, color, race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or national origin, disease related causes (special exception may be made if the event advances our corporate purpose) or individual sports teams, clubs, activities.
