Grants of up to $2,500 and grants of up to $10,000 to Oregon nonprofit organizations in eligible areas for projects that benefit the local community. Funding is intended for activities that align with the following areas of focus: arts and culture, children and families, community livability, and education. Projects must serve the greater Sweet Home area, as defined by the Sweet Home School District boundaries.

The Sweet Home Community Foundation will be offering two grant options again this year; its normal “SHCF Grant” and the “Alice Blazer Grant” for larger qualified projects. 

Generally, a successful Sweet Home Community Foundation grant project will:

  • Improve the quality of life in Sweet Home
  • Have broad community support and/or foster community involvement
  • Have a lasting, beneficial effect
  • Provide widely available advantages for children and families or enhanced livability, education and arts and culture to the community
  • The applicant demonstrates a high likelihood to successfully complete the project.
