Adams County Community Foundation Grant Opportunities:

  • Traditional Grant Request: Submitted by one nonprofit organization.
  • Collaborative Grant Request: Two or more nonprofit organizations come together for a common event or program. One organization takes the lead to be responsible for grant paperwork. Grant requests must serve all the collaborative organizations’ mission statements. A collaborative Grant Request requires that each nonprofit have an active role in the event or program. Collaborative Grant Requests will be given priority during the Spring/April grant review cycle.
  • Impact Grant Request: Can be submitted by one or more organization. The successful impact grant will serve a very broad range of Adams County residents.
