01/19/18 - Deadline for Member Agency Grants; Discretionary Grant Applications are accepted throughout the year.
Grants to New York nonprofits and agencies in Bronxville, Eastchester, and Tuckahoe to serve the education, health, and welfare needs of residents. Criteria for determining funding include community needs, community impact, distribution of existing services, the population served, the quality of administration or service, collaboration, and financial condition.
There are four categories of grants:
l. Member Agency Grants: Agencies which receive funding for their operating and administrative budget as well as for program support are considered “Community Fund Member Agencies”. Member Agencies must meet the criteria for membership defined under “Criteria for Community Fund Agency Membership” and agree to abide by all the regulations of The Fund. In addition to their regular allocations, member agencies may also receive discretionary grant funding. The Fund reserves the right to review this membership annually.
2. Conditional Member Agency Grants: An organization not currently a member agency may apply for Conditional Agency Membership, which request will be reviewed by the Evaluation Committee and ultimately must be approved by the Board. If approved by the Board, funding may be provided for a minimum of one year and maximum of three years, pending full evaluation of administrative and program effectiveness. The organization must meet the criteria for membership defined under “Criteria for Community Fund Agency Membership” and agree to abide by all the regulations of The Community Fund.
3. Discretionary Grants: Discretionary grants are meant to fund either a specific time-limited project/program or provide seed money for a new initiative, see “Criteria for Discretionary Grant Applications.” Programs in this category shall generally be funded for one year and a maximum of $10,000. The applicant organization must meet the basic criteria for membership and the following requirements:
- The target area derives direct identifiable benefits from the organization’s services.
- The organization’s program is considered to meet a critical local need.
- The Program has clearly stated goals/objectives achievable within the grant period.
4. Community Program Grants: Certain discretionary grants may qualify to become a Community Program Grant after the first year of funding if determined by The Fund that it (1) meets a broad, on-going local need, and (2) the sponsoring group is not eligible to become a Member Agency.
