COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (January 7, 2015) — Ent Federal Credit Union invites local non-profit organizations to apply for its 2015 Youth Endowment Series (YES) grant program, supporting the efforts of organizations benefitting youth in the community.
Interested non-profits should visit Ent.com/YESGrants for more information and to submit an application. Applications must be received by February 6, 2015, and selected agencies will be announced in April.
Established in 2000, the YES program provides grants of up to $5,000 to organizations benefitting youth in the Pikes Peak, Pueblo and Firestone, Colorado communities that Ent serves. Applications are evaluated by a volunteer panel of Ent employees based on the organization’s general benefit to the community, potential ability to use the grant to obtain additional funds and degree of current community support, among other criteria.
