Credit Union of America is pleased to offer Teach, Grow and Inspire the Future (TGIF) grants. A task force of Credit Union of America employees and volunteer members will be responsible for reviewing the applications. If your proposal is selected for funding, we ask that you let Credit Union of America know the outcome of your project. Credit Union of America hopes to enhance the educational process by offering financial aid to those who wish to supplement the regular curriculum with special activities. TGIF is funded by a portion of the interest paid on CUA’s Give Back credit card program. Thank you for the many contributions you make to the young people of our community. We look forward to receiving your application and supporting your program.
