NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS
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:
- Projects supporting access to local arts and music
- Projects related to sustainability
- Projects promoting stronger and more viable communities
Verity will award grants on a semi-annual basis in the spring and fall.
To learn more about the micro-grant program, please read the program description document.
