Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $15,000 to Minnesota nonprofit organizations, agencies, and schools for initiatives to benefit the local community in eligible locations. Funding is intended for general operating or program support. Focus areas include community enhancement and economic development, and bridging the opportunity gap. The Foundation's geographic area includes Crow Wing and southern Cass Counties.

The Brainerd Lakes Area Community Foundation (BLACF) supports specific community initiatives through a variety of grants. BLACF seeks to make smaller grants for general operations and programs to address changing community needs. BLACF also seeks to make significant grants that will bring about community-wide, lasting, and positive changes in the Brainerd Lakes area. BLACF is looking to provide leadership and financial support that goes beyond the grant in order to advance the project or initiative that needs a large dollar amount to get started or completed.

Focus Areas:

  • Bridging the Opportunity Gap: Grants for projects that support disadvantaged youth and help them participate in events, activities, or related programs that build skills and career knowledge that help lead to future success
  • Community Enhancement and Economic Development
    • Community Economic Vitality and Sustainability
    • Welcoming Communities
    • Access to music, arts and especially those made available to the disadvantaged or open to all
