Western Nevada College Partnership

Supporting Western Nevada College (WNC)

Greater Nevada Credit Union has been a long-time supporter of WNC, and our North Carson branch is just down the road from the college. Over the years we've sponsored WNC programs and fundraisers, presented scholarships to GNCU members attending WNC, and participated in the WNC Foundation.

Greater Driving in Northern Nevada

GNCU is also the official sponsor of the Greater Driving in Northern Nevada program at WNC. The program goals include promoting safe driving among new drivers in Northern Nevada through the WNC Driver’s Ed program, offering exclusive student benefits, and providing financial education to students regarding responsible car ownership.

Students who successfully complete the WNC Drivers Education program can receive free gifts and the opportunity for partial reimbursement toward their course cost. Students who complete the Driver Ed program may also participate in an essay contest to earn one of three $500 scholarships for WNC. Talk to your Driver's Ed program instructor for details.

In addition, GNCU is helping WNC raise money for a new driving simulator. Donations are accepted in GNCU Carson City, Dayton, and Minden branches and will be matched dollar for dollar up to $1,500.
