Grant awards include support of human services related activities and scholarship funding at a number of institutes of Colorado State Higher Education. This support is given via a grant award process developed and executed by the foundation board of directors.  Specifically, the foundation will strive to award grants that meet these criteria:

Education – Organizations who support, or are a part of, public higher education in the State of Colorado. The primary focus is the funding of scholarships for both students and educators in the State of Colorado.  A second emphasis is awarding scholarships to students and educators who are members of the Credit Union of Colorado.

Human Services – Organizations that provide assistance programs for meeting basic health, welfare, and other needs of the poor, sick, or elderly.  These organizations must serve the needs of communities in the State of Colorado.
