Grants totaling $10,000 to North Carolina nonprofit organizations to benefit residents of Saluda. First-time applicants must first contact the funding source. Funding may be requested for civic events occurring in Saluda, special projects, and capital funding.

Funding is For:
- Civic events in Saluda, which are open to residents of Saluda and may be attended by others as well.
- Non-recurring expenses or capital projects like repairs to roofs, remodeling and the purchase of equipment which will last for some years (however, no more than one-half of the annual distribution should be awarded for the capital projects of any one organization).
- Other special projects considered worthwhile by the Polk County Community Foundation.

Past grants have been awarded to support community events such as The Saluda Art and Music Festival, public gatherings at Twin Lakes, and summer reading programs. Saluda Community Fund awards have also funded roof repairs for the Saluda Medical Center, kudzu eradication projects, walking paths, and other beautification initiatives.
