GROW is a fund established by Advantis Credit Union that will provide local communities with financial resources to address a wide range of needs and tackle challenges in our neighborhoods - one project at a time. 

We're awarding $50,000 for projects that make a difference in our community. 
GROW awards small and moderate sized non-profits with funding for locally-identified needs, helping these organizations improve the quality of life in our community. Grants of up to $10,000 are awarded for specific, one-time capital expenses and short term projects that promise long-term benefits.
