Grant Description
Grants to Oregon nonprofit organizations, public agencies, and schools in eligible counties to conduct educational enrichment programs for students. Funding is intended to support in-school and extracurricular programs for children and youth demonstrating high potential for academic achievement. Eligible applicants are located in Lane, Linn, Benton, Douglas, Tillamook, and Lincoln counties.

The Chintimini Fund of Oregon Community Foundation supports programs for high-potential students — including those identified as talented and gifted (TAG) — at schools and other community organizations in Douglas, Benton, Lane, Linn, Tillamook and Lincoln counties. The Fund especially wants to encourage programs which inspire and motivate "bright but bored" students who are not fully engaged by existing school programs. Innovative projects are welcome.

OCF's current request for proposals describes program goals, the application process and national research about excellence in programming for high-potential students. Competitive proposals will fulfill the program goals, incorporate research-based and innovative strategies, and integrate program planning with program evaluation in mind. 

Organizations may use grant funds only for project expenses. Eligible expenses include materials, program marketing costs, staff time and administrative support.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
Eligible applicants include schools, public agencies and 501(c)(3) nonprofits in Lane, Linn, Benton, Douglas, Tillamook and Lincoln counties.

Organizations may use grant funds only for project expenses — not for operating costs, fundraising expenses or endowments.

Pre-Application Information
The due date for receiving applications is Thursday, March 16 by 9:00p.m.

Estimated Size of Grant
Average grant awards are expected to range from $3,000 to $7,000 each.
