Mathews Community Foundation (MCF)

Grants ranging from $1,000 to $10,000 to Mathews County, Virginia nonprofit organizations, agencies, and schools for programs and projects that focus on the areas of arts and culture, economic stability, education, and health and wellness. The funding source funds projects that are most likely to produce positive and lasting change in the area served by MCF.
In some cases, MCF may take a more proactive approach to addressing important community issues. The foundation will seek to identify community initiatives that advance solutions to our community’s greatest challenges using innovative strategies and a collaborative spirit. The foundation encourages grant requests that are innovative, collaborative, measurable, and sustainable.
The Foundation works closely with grantees to advance these goals:
- Cultural Vibrancy: The goal is for community members to access and appreciate arts and cultural opportunities.
- Economic Prosperity: The goal is for the county's resources to be sustainable and for residents to be economically stable and secure.
- Educational Success: The goal is for young people to achieve in school, engage in their community and be prepared for the workforce.
- Health and Wellness: The goal is for community members to be safe and healthy.
