Remember: Cornerstone CU Foundation Grants Deadline April 27
Thursday, April 19, 2018 6:45 AM

The Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation made some recent changes to their grants program. To streamline the grants process, the general training grant request and the CIF credit union development grant request are now the Credit Union Development Grant.

There will only be one grant cycle for Credit Union Development Grants. Previously, grant cycles were held in spring and again in fall. The deadline for this year’s grant cycle for Credit Union Development Grants & Chapter Grants is April 27, 2018.

Below is some general additional information about the Foundation’s various grant types. There is also a recorded webinar available online about the new grant program.  Applications for grants are available on the Foundation’s website.
