Community Grant Program

Forest Area Federal Credit Union’s Community Grant Program is available to continue our support of our communities in a way that could enhance the lives of our membership. Forest Area Federal Credit Union will consider projects for funding such as those that contribute to improvements that support arts and culture, basic human needs, the local environment, health and safety improvement projects, recreation and support for seniors and youth.  In the two years since Forest Area Federal Credit Union has offered the Community Grant program we have donated nearly $45,000 to projects within our communities.

  • EG Ministries: funding for a backpack food program in the Manton Area Schools
