Requests for Funding

Trust Based Funding Request Test

Community Investment Funding Request

To be considered for Daycos4good charitable dollars, applicants must fall into one of the following Investment Focus Areas:

  • Developing, Inspiring, and Building Capacity in Leadership
  • Growing Our Future Through Our Youth
  • Using Innovative Technology to Equalize and Improve Lives
  • Serving Those Who Serve (military, veterans, first responders and law enforcement)

In addition, applicants must:

  • Be a 501(c)3 organization or political subdivision (such as a city, village, public school, etc.).
  • Demonstrate inclusive and non-discriminatory practices by providing a non-discrimination policy with the application or past examples of inclusivity.

Daycos4Good Funding Request process starts with completing a Community Investment Grant Application to determine whether your organization and project are a good fit.  There are no deadlines for submission and we generally respond within one month of receiving your application.

The Community Investment Committee will review all requests for funding and may engage applicants in additional questions, conversations, and collaboration to help develop the most impactful investment opportunities.

Daycos4Good is interested in partnering with like-minded programs and organizations to make a difference in the community.  Proposals that demonstrate that they align with Daycos culture and mindset, by meeting one or more of these criteria, will have a higher chance of receiving funding.  Stronger consideration will be given to grants that:

  • Demonstrate alignment with our Daycos Core Values.
    • Be better tomorrow than we are today.
    • Fix the problem, be the solution.
    • Build relationships for the long-term.
    • Make this a great place to work.
    • Give back, it’s what we do.
  • Support our corporate philosophy and are beneficial to, or at the very least do no harm to, any of the four Daycos4Good stakeholders. These stakeholders are interdependent and share equal importance in all Daycos’ decisions.
    • Is it good for the company?
    • Is it good for our customers?
    • Is it good for our employees?
    • Is it good for the community?
  • Focus on Norfolk and the surrounding area (this is our priority investment area, but Daycos4Good may consider a larger geographic area as warranted).
  • Provide opportunities for hands-on involvement and volunteer opportunities for others (such as Daycos’ employees and their families and/or community members) in making them a reality.
  • We actively seek to collaborate with community partners rather than waiting for ideas to come to us and are willing to share ideas generated by Daycos’ Community Investment Committee and our employees with community organizations.
  • Requests for support of projects presented by religious organizations will be considered if a general need is being met and the project does not promote the teachings of a religion or denomination.
  • No grants may be used for any political campaign.
