Priority will be given to grant applications that first show availability of matching funds and second to programs that address the Community Foundation’s priority areas. The Foundation will also consider how grants may raise regional visibility, increase capacity, leverage additional donations, and reward previous grant eligibility.

Grant applications will include permission for site visits to the successful applicant and requirement for written evaluation of results from the grant at a designated time. If no written evaluation is provided, then the applicant will be ineligible for future Foundation grants.
