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 $3,000 to $25,000. The giving program was created in 2008, and since then has awarded a total of over $1,000,000 to 100 organizations throughout Humboldt, Del Norte, and Trinity counties.
Applications may be obtained online at coastccu.org under the Community tab, or by calling Coast Central’s VP of Marketing and Communications Colleen Toste at (707) 445-8801, x 309. The deadline is Friday, August 31. 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.
