Supporting young readers and transition-age foster youth.

Our Community Grant Program

We’re excited to announce our 2021 Community Grant recipients!

At Golden 1, it’s our honor to support programs that help children, teens, and young adults gain skills and resources that will put them on the road to secure and productive lives. Each year, we contribute more than $600,000 annually to support the efforts of nonprofit organizations in California.

Grant Details

The Golden 1 Credit Union Community Grant Program funds nonprofits serving communities in the Sacramento Valley and Central Valley. We support organizations working to address the needs of young readers and transition-age young adults in two focus areas:

  1. Literacy: Programs geared to improve the reading skills of children in grades K-12, including reading comprehension and overall school performance.
  2. 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.
