At U.S. Bank, we invest our time, resources and passion to build and support vibrant communities that allow every person to work toward their possible. U.S. Bank’s corporate giving and volunteer program is called Community Possible and it focuses our community investments on programs centered on Work, Home and Play. Community Possible is designed to embrace the diversity in our communities. Each organization may only receive one grant per year, and should only apply to one cycle. Please note the application deadlines – if a cycle is missed, eligibility for 2017 funding will not be likely.
“We’re proud to help local organizations strengthen our communities and look forward to continuing to make Community Possible in 2017 and beyond,” said Kimbra Wellock, U.S. Bank community development manager for Washington and Idaho.
PLAY: Application open February 1 - March 15
Play brings joy. It is beneficial for problem solving, creativity, and relationships. Play is just as necessary for adults as it is for kids, but in low-income areas there are often limited spaces for play and fewer people attending arts and cultural activities. That’s why we invest in community programming that supports ways for children and adults to play and create.
WORK: Application open April 1 - May 31
At U.S. Bank, we know that a strong small business environment and an educated workforce ensure the prosperity of our communities. Through our grant making program, we make that possible. We support programs and organizations that help small businesses thrive, allow people to succeed in the workforce, provide pathways to higher education, and gain greater financial literacy.
HOME: Application open July 1 - August 31
The case for a stable, healthy home environment is clear: children and families are better positioned to thrive and succeed in a home that is safe and permanent. In response, our giving supports efforts that connect individuals and families with sustainable housing opportunities.
NATIONAL PARTNERSHIPS AND PROGRAMS: Application open February 1 - March 15
