Veridian awards $70,000 in grants, opens new grant cycle for applications
Veridian has awarded $70,000 in grants to 15 organizations across Iowa and eastern Nebraska. The credit union awards Successful Financial Future Grants of up to $5,000 annually. Grants are awarded for general operating expenses of nonprofit organizations who address barriers to financial stability through financial literacy and employment readiness.
"Deficiencies in financial literacy and employment readiness can create long-term barriers to a successful financial future," said Angela Weekley, Veridian's Community Inclusion Manager. "Our grant program is aimed at identifying and supporting organizations who are helping people in our communities overcome those barriers."
