Grants ranging from $500 to $1,000 to Cottage Grove Area, Oregon nonprofit organizations for programs that improve the quality of life of local residents. The funding is intended to support a broad range of projects in the areas of social and civic needs, culture, healthcare, and education.

The Foundation defines its community service area 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, and if they help an organization to address both current and future needs.
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 our community by addressing the source of major problems
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 6 months of award notification date.
6. Preference will be given to organizations who have not received CGCF Community Grants during the last two years.
