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 Microgrant 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 that align with Verity's values (What Guides Us)
Verity will award grants on a semi-annual basis in the spring and fall.
To learn more about the microgrant program, please read the program description document.
