We tend to give.


At Tendto, we recognize and support the pursuit of higher education and want to help our members fund their future. In the spirit of our commitment to furthering education and investing in our young adult members, we are happy to announce our 2019 Scholarship Program.

Our Scholarship Program is designed to support college-aged members who are motivated in their academic endeavors, active in their schools, and contributing to their community by giving back to others through their participation, service and volunteer work. 

The credit union will award a total of $3,000 to three recipients. The first place winner will receive $1,500, the second place winner will receive $1,000 and the third place winner will receive $500, respectively. 

Interested applicants must complete the written application and create a 1-2 minute video answering the following question:

  • If you ran Tendto Credit Union, what initiatives, programs and/or products would you implement to attract young adults (ages 18-35) while continuing the credit union mission of making life better for Erie County?

A link to the video must be included in the application form. Video entries can be edgy, funny, bold, simple, serious – or anything in between.
