Spring Grant Cycle - gfcu Community Endowment

Administered by the Phoenix Foundation of the Boundary Communities
Applications are currently closed.
gfcu has made the commitment to establish a community endowment fund in the amount of $1,000,000, and has chosen the Phoenix Foundation of the Boundary Communities to assist with the administration of this fund and the processing of annual financial grant applications.

We are pleased to note, in 2017 that the fund has reached $750,000. We expect to reach our goal of $1,000,000 in the next 3-5 years.

The purpose of this endowment is to create a Boundary Community owned asset which through positive investment returns, will provide annual financial support for community projects in perpetuity.

Though funding is not exclusive to these, we will be actively seeking projects in the following areas:

community economic development

We are always looking for ways to help build and strengthen the business community, and help boost our local economy. There are countless ways this can be achieved, and we would love to help make related projects come to life. If your project does something that could increase tourism, enhance local business networks, educate or inform, or generally strengthen our business community at its core, then we want to hear about it.


financial literacy and sustainable economics

Informed decisions can only be made by informed people. As such, we are in full support of almost any project that will help educate our population in the field of financial responsibility. A successful population is closer than we think, and with some massive generational changes taking place in the near future, we want people of all ages to be prepared for their unique next step.


reducing environmental impact

Without making any one area of environment an exclusive priority, we are very interested in projects that will help build sustainability in the region. Past projects have seen us help improve air and water quality and lower carbon footprints. But we know this is only the beginning, and we look forward to the bright ideas in store.
