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 will contribute more than $500,000 to support the efforts of non-profit organizations in the Sacramento Valley (including El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, and Yolo Counties) and Central Valley (including Fresno, Kings, and Madera Counties).
AREAS OF FOCUS:
Golden 1 Credit Union grants will fund programs that address 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.
We are no longer accepting proposals for the 2020 Community Grants Program. Recipients will be notified in June 2020 for programs operating July 2020 through June 2021.
Since we created the Community Grant Program in 2014, it has awarded grants to 64 nonprofits, totaling more than $3.2 million for literacy and transition-age foster youth. In 2019, we awarded grants to 28 nonprofits in California.
