If this is the Hospital's Credit Union doesn't it already have the
institution's endorsement ?
Are they allowed to put up posters in break rooms and cafeterias ?

Are there any details that you are specially concerned about ?  Has anyone
at the C.U. ever given you reason to believe that they would try to unduly
influence your collection development or operating policies ?

You could, for added peace of mind, go to your administrator/supervisor for
an opinion.

Yet, overall,  I wouldn't see any conflict of interest to
promoting/advertising something that your institution already endorses.  

You could be like NPR and call it an "Underwriting Credit".  

How about ???
The XYZ Hospital Library would like thank
"XYZ Hospital Credit Union"
For their generous support of your medical information resources.

Subject: Question

I am being asked by my benefits area to let our hospital credit union
sponsor our Current Awareness listing that we send out to all employees each
day. In exchange the library would receive a one time monetary gift.
In this time of poor budgets of course all money helps but I feel this would
be against what our library stands for. I don't want to have commercials on
our site.
I would like to hear from other librarians as to what they think about this
