Foundation grants available for innovative financial education projects

Do you have a great idea for a project or program that will enhance financial education in your community or among members and that needs financial support to make it a reality? Consider launching this new initiative in April, which is both Financial Literacy Month and Credit Union Youth Month.

The Ohio Credit Union Foundation offers financial education grants to help credit unions implement programs within their communities that provide services and financial education to members, local schools, and underserved populations. Grant applications are accepted throughout the year and awarded bi-monthly to credit unions.

Grant applications are evaluated on demonstrated and documented need, a meaningful contribution (direct or indirect financial and/or resources) to the project by the credit union, active participation in the project by the credit union, measurable impact on your target audience, and innovation with the potential for replication by other credit unions. Credit unions will be reimbursed after completing the project and receiving a grant results report. Funds may not be used as a cash donation to a third party. ​​

Apply here and reach out to Kim Connor, Foundation Executive Director, with questions.
