Community Investment

With thanks to our members, we award $300,000 in grants annually to deserving organizations.

Our Community Investment Program provides grants to local non-profit organizations twice per year. An employee committee reviews all applications and then makes recommendations to our Board of Directors who approves grant recipients. Grants ranging generally from $3,000 to $25,000 are awarded, up to a total of $150,000 in each round. See our recent recipients below!

The spring round of our Community Investment Grant program has closed.

All applicants will be notified by the end of April. Our next round opens August 1. Thank you for your interest.
