BankOnBuffalo has been a generous supporter of our local communities and is committed to making every effort to further our involvement within the community and its organizations. Donations have ranged from national organization fundraisers such as Relay for Life to local school events. Because the requests are so great, guidelines have been implemented in order to assist as many organizations as possible. If you are interested in seeking a donation, please review the following guidelines before submitting your request at your local community office. BankOnBuffalo reserves the right to handle each donation request on a case-by-case basis.
Monetary Donations and Sponsorships
Monetary donations and sponsorship requests will only be considered if you are a 501c (3) non-profit organization. The contribution must be used to raise funds for the benefit of at least one of the following purposes:
- Community Service
- Youth Activities
- Special Community Projects
Priority will be given to organizations that foster growth and development within the communities we support.
Donations can only be given to organizations that are not for profit and an Exempt Status number must be included in your request.
BankOnBuffalo does not consider donation requests for the following:
- Requests from individuals
- Religious groups
- Political parties, candidates or causes
- Incomplete applications
- Requests with less than proper notification
BankOnBuffalo will make every effort to process your request in a timely manner. All organizations will be contacted regardless of approval or denial of your request. A decision to deny a request does not imply that the applicant's program is not needed or worthy, but simply that it does not fall within our giving guidelines, priorities, or that funds are not available.
