Grants of up to $3,000 to Latah County, Idaho nonprofits, agencies, and schools for programs that will enhance the quality of life for local residents. Funding may be awarded to programs in the areas of human services, health, education, environment, youth, civic improvement, the arts, and other projects for the general public good. Grants will be made to fund activities, services, and projects of organizations that are established as well as to provide assistance for new organizations to fill unmet and/or emerging community needs.
The Foundation provides three main types of funding:
1) Project or Program support for new or existing programs.
2) Capacity Building Support for projects designed to improve an organization's capacity to serve its constituents.
3) Operating Support for start-up or existing organizations, when the Foundation is convinced that such funding for a limited period of time can make a difference.
