Supporting customers who attend workshops on various topics including problem solving, record keeping, decision-making, business planning and business continuity.

As a cooperative, FCSAmerica invests in our customer’s financial success. This includes sponsoring the registration fee for customers to attend approved educational programs or events that address problem solving, record keeping, decision-making and/or business planning. Programs that assist customers with business continuity, such as succession, family transition, retirement and estate planning, also may qualify for sponsorship.

Customers who meet eligibility requirements may qualify for up to $1,000 to cover all or part of a program’s registration fee. Travel, lodging and other expenses are not eligible for reimbursement and are the responsibility of participants.

Sponsorships are awarded following FCSAmerica’s review of eligibility. Participants will be contacted by FCSAmerica within two business days of submitting their request for sponsorship.

Approved participants must provide an itemized receipt verifying payment to an approved program and feedback about the educational content. Customers can apply for sponsorship before or after an event, but reimbursement of approved registration fees is post-event.
