Grants of up to $1,000 to Oregon nonprofit organizations in eligible areas for programs that improve the quality of life of local residents. Funding is intended to support a broad range of projects in the areas of social and civic needs, culture, healthcare, and education. Programs must benefit residents of Cottage Grove in the Cottage Grove Community Foundation's community service area, which is defined as that covered by the South Lane School District. The Foundation grants will be limited to this area unless otherwise specified by an individual donor.

In authorizing Community Grants, the Foundation gives preference to projects of the following types:

  1. Projects that demonstrate a timely impact on an organization’s development and the community it serves.
  2. Projects or programs aimed at providing needed services or facilities for which public funds are either not available or are not sufficient and the Foundation’s contribution, either by itself or in conjunction with other private support, would have a significant impact.
  3. Programs which would contribute to the educational, medical, cultural, social, and civic needs of the community. 
  4. Programs where modest amounts of money can make a significant difference and which promise tangible benefits or means of solving community problems or concerns.
  5. Programs which will be completed within 1 year of award notification date with a progress report at the 6 month mark. 
  6. Preference will be given to organizations that have not received CGCF Community Grants during the last two years.
