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.


Apply for a grant

Nonprofits may submit applications anytime and will be reviewed twice each year following the deadlines. Decisions will be communicated approximately four months from the deadline date.
