$10,000 grants available for credit unions

Published by: Kim Connor

March 9, 2023 | Ohio Credit Union Foundation

The Ohio Credit Union Foundation believes in building stronger communities and removing barriers through credit unions. The New Beginnings grant program is focused on four demographics (foster care youth, domestic abuse survivors, ex-offenders, addiction recovery) and is designed to give people a way forward and an opportunity to feel financially empowered. The grant will provide one-time support, up to $10,000, for programs, projects, or initiatives that prioritize individuals reentering local communities. Funding is open to both new and existing programs, projects, or initiatives.

 

Our goal is to distribute at least twenty-five, one-time grants of $10,000 in 2023. The online grant application is a short easy form. Apply here
