Community Grants

Investing in our youth.

Making positive changes together.


Golden 1 Credit Union values our members and communities we serve. We feel it is our responsibility to support organizations that give children the keys to success so they can flourish. As such, we created the Community Grant Program in 2014 to contribute to causes that make positive change in California. Each year we enhance the quality of life in these communities by contributing more than $500,000 to worthy organizations.

Since inception, the program has awarded grants to 64 non-profits in the Sacramento and Fresno regions, totaling more than $3.2 million for literacy and transition-age foster youth.

In 2019, we awarded grants to 28 nonprofits in California.
