Could Your Local Organization Use Money? $100,000 in Grants Now Available From Coast Central Credit Union
Coast Central Credit Union announced that the spring 2018 round of its CCCU Dean G. Christensen Community Investment Program is now open. A total of $100,000 is available – double the amount in prior rounds – to support local organizations throughout its tri-county area. Grant amounts range from $5,000 to $25,000. The giving program was created in 2008, and since then has awarded a total of $1,000,000 to nearly 90 organizations throughout Humboldt, Del Norte, and Trinity counties.
Applications may be obtained online at coastccu.org under the Community tab, or by calling Humboldt Area Foundation at (707) 442-2993. The deadline is Wednesday, February 28. A committee comprised of credit union staff will review all completed applications and then make recommendations to Coast Central’s Board of Directors, who ultimately approves the grants.
