Investing in youth and young adults in California.

Community Grant Program


Golden 1 Credit Union respects and values our members, employees, and communities.  To enhance the quality of life in the communities we serve, Golden 1 contributes more than $500,000 annually to support the efforts of non-profit organizations in California.

Areas of Focus


Golden 1 Credit Union awards grants to programs that address the needs of children and young adults in two categories:

  • Literacy: Programs that help children and young adults learn to read, improve their reading comprehension, and assist them in improving school performance.
  • Transition-Age Foster Youth: Programs that provide services, assistance, and opportunities for young people between the ages of 16 and 24 years old who are or have been in foster care.
