Grants of up to $10,000 to Illinois government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and schools in eligible locations to address community needs related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. Funding is intended to support collaborative programs that benefit local residents. Proposals must be submitted by at least two organizations working together to benefit Skokie residents. Priority will be given to activities addressing inequality.

The Skokie Community Foundation is now accepting applications for its 2022 grant cycle. This year the Foundation is seeking to fund proposals that address needs that have arisen in Skokie due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath. The Foundation invites proposals in which two or more organizations collaborate for the benefit of Skokie residents. 

The Foundation requests proposals that aim to help Skokie residents recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath. Preference will be given to proposals that directly address how the project will benefit Skokie residents in areas of clearly identified needs. These areas may include but are not limited to: psychological and social-emotional ramifications of COVID; issues pertaining to the return to the workplace and school setting, as well as the challenges faced by students after prolonged remote learning. Additionally, preference will be given to proposals that recognize the importance of the racial, social, and economic inequality that were exposed and exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Applications may be based upon new initiatives, pilot projects, or continuing improvements to projects that have shown long-term, positive impact. Preference will be given to ongoing projects rather than one-day, stand-alone events. Preference will be given to projects that are sustainable.
