Credit Union Grants
We empower credit unions through leveraged, strategic partnerships and funding opportunities that make impacts throughout the Northwest. We fund projects and initiatives that forward our work in areas of asset building, economic empowerment, and cooperative development. If you are a credit union or a credit union partner interested in receiving grant support from the Northwest Credit Union Foundation, please review our grant award applicant requirements.
Applicant organizations must be:
- An Idaho, Oregon, or Washington credit union affiliated with the Northwest Credit Union Association (NWCUA);
- An affiliated credit union organization (i.e., Chapters, Development Educators, Credit Union Young Professionals) or a group involved with credit union development activities located in Idaho, Oregon, or Washington; or
- A community-based organization or nonprofit currently in direct partnership with credit union(s) affiliated with the NWCUA, or who can demonstrate a robust plan to partner with credit union(s) on community initiatives aligned with a NWCUF focus area.
All projects or programs must align with the NWCUF mission and address one or more focus area(s): Asset Building, Economic Empowerment, or Cooperative Development.
If you have a project or partnership aligned with the Foundation’s focus areas and mission, please submit a grant application.
