Grants of up to $300 and grants of up to $2,500 to Roscommon County, Michigan nonprofits, government agencies, schools, and faith-based organizations for community benefit and children's and youth programs. Funding is intended for the areas of education, environment, healthcare, human services, humanities, and public benefit.
Applicants may apply for a YAC grant or a RCCF common grant. YAC grants must be related to or to benefit youth or children of Roscommon County.
Priority will be given to projects that:
- Reach a broad segment of the community
- Encourage matching gifts or additional funding
- Foster organizational capacity building and sustainability
- Assist those citizens whose needs are not being met by existing services
- Meet emerging needs, are innovative and have a high probability of leading to new solutions to community challenges
- Are collaborative, comprehensive, promote cooperation among organizations within the region, and have the potential for ongoing community impact
The Roscommon County Community Foundation values projects that promote inclusiveness and that do not discriminate in hiring of staff or providing services on the basis of race, gender, religion, marital status, sexual orientation, age, national origin, or disability.

Proposals seeking seed money for projects that are new, dynamic, and that show funding support from additional organizations, may be given consideration.
RCCF generally discourages repeated applications for sustained funding of programs.
Grant applications must be in the RCCF office by the end of the business day on the last day of the application period. This is usually April 30 or October 1, however, if these dates fall on a weekend, the due date will be by the end of business on the preceding Friday. This year, since October 1 falls on a Sunday, the deadline will be Friday, September 29, 2017.
Grants are usually awarded one to two months after the closing of the submission period. Grant applicants will be expected to make a presentation to the grant readers. Those who are not available to make a presentation, or are unable to send a representative, will not be awarded grants.
RCCF Grants are “Receipt Based Grants”, and for accounting purposes, allocated funds will be disbursed upon receipt of proof of the expenditures. Grants are paid within one year of approval.
A request to consider a portion of support for a project, rather than one which looks to the Foundation as a sole funding source, will generally receive greater priority. RCCF is especially interested in matching grants which will attract funding from other sources.
