Forest Area Federal Credit Union (FAFCU) is committed to giving back to the community that supports them. Check out our programs and recent involvement.
Our Board of Directors acts as a committee to receive grant applications throughout the year. They 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.
Funding may cover capital improvements, new or replacement equipment, and new building projects supporting parks and recreation could qualify for funding from the grant program.
Who Can Apply:
Community non-profit organizations or government units who sponsor public projects that are located in FAFCU’s field of membership. (Portions of Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, Wexford and Antrim Counties)
How To Apply:
