FAQ

How do I upload and link to a video?
Upload a video to your personal or work YouTube or Vimeo account. Grab the link to the publicly available video and then paste that into your GiveLively fundraising page under Hero Image. If you don't have an account, reach out the Beth and she can help you upload to the HCUCF YouTube channel.

How many videos can I submit?
You can submit as many videos as you want, however, the system will only allow you to use an email address once. So either get creative using various email addresses or asking a colleague to upload for you.

Who is eligible to submit?
Anyone that works or volunteers at a credit union, or their immediate family. Also, employees and volunteers of our sponsors are also welcome to submit. 

Who can vote/donate? 
Your colleagues, friends, family, neighbors, random Facebook friends - anyone! 

What are the video length requirements?  
We suggest no more than 1-3 minutes for limited attention spans.

Can we use previous videos? (i.e. if I was in a band and have a show to share?)
Absolutely! If you have an amazing talent already on video then run with it! Want to splice together some of your best TikTok videos? Go for it!

Can a Credit Union donate money to the fundraising pages of their own talented employees that enter or is that discouraged?
It is absolutely encouraged! If you want to put your donations behind your employees, please do. We love you showing your CU family love! 

All donations are going toward the Heartland Credit Union Association Charitable Foundation—any specific cause we can promote that they will donate to?
This is our main fundraiser this year because...2020, so the funds will be going to the grants and scholarships we offer throughout the year.
