Verity Credit Union is a community financial cooperative. As such, we seek ways to create value for our communities. Therefore, we have created the Verity Credit Union Micro-Grant program for the greater Seattle, Lynnwood and Auburn areas.

Our grants are intended to provide community members with funding for specific projects that advance community well-being. We are currently welcoming applications related to the following focus areas:

Verity will award grants on a semi-annual basis in the spring and fall.
