Each year, our Catalyst Grant program awards funds to nonprofits to help them launch new, innovative projects that enhance their ability to serve the community.

For many nonprofits in our service area, the COVID-19 pandemic has been especially challenging. To provide the kind of support most needed during this uncertain time, the 2020 Catalyst Grant program will award three $10,000 grants to local nonprofits who are able to demonstrate a specific need for COVID-19 relief.

Does your nonprofit organization need relief funds? We're here to help.
$ 10,000

We believe it is our duty as a responsible, community-based financial institution to assist our communities when they need us the most.

To provide funds as quickly as possible, we have developed a streamlined application process with a shortened application window. Please visit Grant Guidelines, Application Process, and FAQ pages for more information on how to apply.
