Together we can inspire change right here in our community

Building connections that fuel lasting impact

The foundation of who we are at PenAir is built on the relationship between our organization and the communities we serve. We’re always looking for like-minded, community partnerships that enhance the lives of those in need.

Serving the community means more than signing a big check

PenAir strives to be the catalyst where community, resources, and impact produce a powerful force for good.

When local spirit and common goals meet, big things happen. Events bring us together for a greater good. And we have a lot of fun doing it. You can find us at local chamber and community events throughout the communities we serve.

Need a little more information?

Maybe you’ll find what you’re looking for here.

  1. Event Support – Need swag to handout at your event? Want us to come setup a tent with kid crafts? Looking for event registration help? Our staff love to make an impact in our community, and a lot of that comes from volunteering. Next to giving out checks, we love to provide the gift of time. Did you know that each PenAir employee receives 5 hours of paid time per month to volunteer during working hours with the organization of their choice. That’s a lot of impact we can provide.
  2. Community Partnerships – We’re always looking for fellow like-minded community partners to build lasting impact. Do you have a need for teaching financial education to those you serve? Are you looking to create awareness through a social media campaign? Let’s connect and decide what our partnership will look like.
  3. Legacy Gifts – Do you have an opportunity that will create generational impact for our communities? We definitely want to hear about it and how we can help effect that change.

We’re thrilled you thought of PenAir for your event/sponsorship request. We ask that all requests be funneled through the online application. However, if you have questions or individualized needs, our Events Coordinator is who you should reach out to.

In order to be compliant with the National Credit Union Association, we must be provided some type of advertising component with the sponsorship.

Unfortunately, PenAir cannot support the following:

  • Administrative expenses such as conferences and/or travel.
  • Projects or events whose primary purpose is religious, legislative or political.

Jeans for Communerosity® (J4C) is an employee-driven fundraising effort to give back to those in need in our community. Each year, our employees nominate local, non-profit organizations to be voted on as recipients of this philanthropic program. Funds are raised through payroll deductions and Jeans for Communerosity days. The funds raised by the employees are matched by PenAir Credit Union and divided equally among the voted charities for the year.

Our best advice would be to engage with our staff through volunteerism. If they support your cause, then the relationship will grow.
