CCCU donates $50K in grants

Four community grants totaling $50,000 have been awarded by Coast Central Credit Union, the largest going to a Del Norte County program.

The awards were announced by Dean G. Christensen, the credit union’s president/CEO. As part of its Community Investment Program, the credit union’s volunteer Board of Directors approved the following community awards:

• $16,840 to CASA of Del Norte, for a youth advocacy program for foster children in the public school environment

• $15,950 to the Dream Quest Teen & Youth Center, for renovations and upgrades to the Willow Creek facility, supporting after-school and weekend youth services

• $10,060 to the Friends of the Arcata Library, for upgrading of furniture, children’s area, displays and book drop

• $7,150 to Mad River Youth Soccer, for safety and functional upgrades to 16–18 soccer goals at Hiller Park, Arcata Elementary, Hoopa and Bloomfield school

According to Christensen, “Coast Central’s Community Investment Program commits $100,000 each year to assist community organizations throughout Humboldt, Del Norte and Trinity counties.

“This $100,000 is divided into two separate ‘rounds’ of $50,000 each. Individual awards range from a minimum of $5,000 to a maximum of $25,000 and are granted to approximately three to six organizations during each round.”

Recommendations from a pool of requests were made to the credit union’s Board of Directors by a committee composed of credit union staff. 

“Coast Central would also like to recognize and thank the Humboldt Area Foundation and its program officer, Sara Dronkers, for their assistance in our selection process,” Christensen said.

The next round of community grants by the credit union for 2014 is beginning now. Applications for grant requests can be obtained online at www.coastccu.org or by contacting the credit union at (707) 445-8801, ext. 309. You can also contact the Humboldt Area Foundation. The deadline for this round is Feb. 28, 2014.
