The Credit Union Foundation creates improvements in people’s lives by supporting efforts that enhance financial literacy and provide personal, affordable financial services.
The Foundation provides grant funding to help credit unions initiate financial literacy projects throughout Maryland and the District of Columbia.
Grants of up to $1,000 are available to help credit unions provide financial education programs for members and the communities they serve.
All Maryland and D.C.-based credit unions are eligible to apply for funding. Credit unions are encouraged to collaborate with each other and by doing so, financial literacy grant requests may be extended up to $1,000 per credit union participating in a single program.
Grant requests are evaluated on a “rolling” basis.
