Grant making


Awarding grant dollars to nonprofits is one way we strengthen our communities and help individuals on a path to financial independence. To ensure we're meeting the needs of our communities and making an even greater collective impact, we focus on three key giving areas when awarding grants.

Meeting Basic Needs

Helping people find their next meal, a place to sleep or a job that provides a livable wage.
