Here are the top 3 things you need to know that GoWest Offers:
1. Scholarships & Grants
The Gowest Foundation and GoWest Solutions teams offer financial support to invest in your teams and help reach your credit union’s goals. The Foundation offers grants – providing funding to drive financial health initiatives across the region and strengthen credit union community impact work.

At GoWest, advocacy is a primary strategic focus! We work with credit unions across our six-state region to help shape policy on federal and state levels. Our Advocacy team works diligently to support our members by championing credit union priorities, supporting laws and regulations that create a helpful operating environment, and defending against legislation that could be harmful to credit unions.
Many of your credit unions have joined us this month to kick-off of our Credit Union Day at the Capitol events – check out the Wyoming highlights here. And see what Ryan Fitzgerald, SVP of Federal Advocacy, is tracking in Washington, D.C., here.
For many states, it’s not too late to join your Credit Union Day at the Capitol Event. Learn more and sign up today!
