Supporting Our Communities


Being a committed community partner is an unwavering pledge. It's why we seek to be thoughtful community partners in everything we do, including our philanthropic giving.

In 2021, we applied an equity lens to our grantmaking process for the UW Credit Union Fund for Racial Equity. We've learned a lot about doing things differently—and we're carrying the Fund for Racial Equity forward by integrating those lessons into our grantmaking process. By doing so, we're reaffirming our commitment to programs that help communities of color achieve financial stability and economic mobility.

We're dedicated to driving lasting improvements in areas tied to our social mission: promoting economic mobility through educational opportunity, improving access to family-supporting employment and making it easier for everyone to find stable housing.

Our 2024 grant application will open in early January and close on February 23. Grant applications should be for long-term programs that will have an impact over time.

Nonprofit organizations are always welcome to apply for community sponsorship online. Community sponsorship requests should be for one-off events or short-term projects.
