When will the school district/private school receive the 1% donation?

Annually, in May, FCCU will calculate 1% of all purchases made between May 1st and April 30th to finalize the annual donation for each school district/private school based on member’s selections of the school district/private school they chose to support. After donations have been made, your 1% calculation will start over in May. For example, in 2022, 1% of purchases will begin accruing on May 1, 2022 and will be tracked through April 30, 2023. Donations will be made in May of 2023.
