College Scholarships

At Greater Nevada Credit Union, we believe in doing the right things for the right reasons. Community is at the core of Greater Nevada's values, which is why we are dedicated to community involvement. This includes donations, sponsorships, fund raising, and employee volunteerism.


We're proud to say that through our Community Service Program, 100% of our employees volunteer with non-profit and charitable organizations throughout northern Nevada. Along with volunteering, Greater Nevada employees serve our community by teaching financial literacy classes at local schools and community organizations. Greater Nevada strives to be a driving force of this community, by inspiring everyone to "Live Greater".


As part of this commitment to our community, Greater Nevada has created strategic partnerships with local organizations Special Olympics of Nevada, Pride of the Sierra University of Nevada Marching Band, and Truckee Meadows Habitat for Humanity.
