CoBank’s Sharing Success program doubles the contributions of its customers to the charitable organizations and causes they care about most.
CoBank recognizes that our customers often know best where funding can most effectively be provided to benefit their communities. Since Sharing Success was established in 2012, CoBank and its customers have together contributed more than $50 million to groups such as volunteer fire departments, local schools and hunger relief programs.
In 2020, many of our communities faced unprecedented challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, CoBank expanded Sharing Success, increasing the matching fund from $4 to $5 million, increasing the maximum match per customer to $10,000 and increasing the number of applications each customer could submit to four. CoBank customers responded to these one-time changes enthusiastically. Hundreds of customers participated in the program, contributing more than $5 million to charitable organizations across the country. Together with the CoBank match, that’s more than $10 million returned to our communities to help those in need.
To all of our participating customers, thank you for making a difference in your community and for allowing us to be your partner in this effort. We look forward to working with you again next year.
