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!

Congrats to the 22 recipients below for being awarded a total of $150,000!

We received 70 applications for nearly $1 million.  Thank you to all for the outstanding impact you make on our communities.

The next round opens August 1
