Ent Credit Union invites local nonprofit organizations in the Denver, El Paso and Pueblo area to apply for its 2019 Youth Endowment Series (YES) grant program, supporting the efforts of organizations benefitting youth in the community.
Interested nonprofits can visit Ent.com/YESGrants for more information and to submit an application. Applications must be received by Friday, February 15, 2019. Grant recipients will be announced in April.
Established in 2000, the YES program provides grants of up to $5,000 to nonprofit organizations benefitting Colorado youth in the communities 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.
The YES grant program is part of Ent’s commitment to being a community-minded organization, serving both the financial and human needs of its communities. Since the program’s inception, Ent has awarded YES grants to more than 100 local community agencies.
