METRO Giving Philosophy Guidelines
San Diego Metropolitan Credit Union (METRO) contributes to its stakeholder base and community through participation in a wide variety of efforts that enrich the lives of those we serve, support their endeavors, and make a positive impact within our community.
The Giving Fund is designated annually by the Board of Directors, and formal requests are reviewed and approved by a community relations committee.
Between 70% - 90% of our annual corporate charitable contributions will be used for programs that are sponsored by and/or benefit our niche market and/or direct stakeholders. Between 10% - 30% of our annual corporate charitable contributions may be used for programs that benefit our community-at-large.
As a general rule, contributions will not be granted for individuals, travel, athletic team sponsorship, political causes or candidates, religious organizations or events, or fraternal organizations or events.
