CoBank's Sharing Success Grant Program

Fayette Electric Cooperative, in partnership with CoBank, one of FEC’s lending partners, offers grants to area not-for-profit organizations. These donations are made possible through CoBank’s Sharing Success charitable contribution program.

CoBank started the program in 2012 to give back to co-ops and the nonprofits they support. Aimed at supporting local communities and people, the Sharing Success grant program matches FEC’s charitable contributions to local nonprofit organizations. Since the program’s inception, CoBank and its customers have together provided over $76 million in support to nonprofit organizations across the nation.

“Over the past ten years, Sharing Success has helped CoBank and our customer owners contribute in a big way to the growth and vibrancy of rural America,” said Thomas Halverson, CoBank’s president and chief executive officer. “It is a collaboration that embodies the cooperative principle of concern for community and leverages the deep local knowledge and strong relationships our customers have within the communities they serve. We are privileged to partner with our customers in their charitable efforts and look forward to many more decades of Sharing Success.”
