GoWest Foundation offers a rolling grant cycle. Grant applications are accepted throughout the year – there is no application deadline. Applications will be reviewed and grants will be awarded on a rolling basis. Typically, applicants will be notified of a decision within 30 days of receiving the submission. However, large grant requests ($50,000 or above) will be reviewed by the GoWest Foundation Board of Directors and determination may exceed 30 days.
Grants are awarded directly to credit unions with rare exception. The Foundation does not award pass-through funds for credit unions to make charitable donations to non-profit organizations.
Please note, once you begin the grant application, it must be submitted in full, responses will not be saved if the application is not completed. A grant application template is available for your convenience.
