- Preference is given to requests that offer a philanthropic approach to community needs and that have the potential for transformative community impact.
- Program operational needs, direct services, capital or equipment expenditures, etc. are eligible for funding.
- The grant review committee encourages collaborative projects where grant dollars can be maximized and serve as many people as possible (relative to the community being served).
Organizations must match the grant on a 1:1 basis.
Grant applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis and reviewed for consideration three times a year. Application deadlines for each review are February 1; May 1; and August 1.
The Community Foundation Board may consider, on occasion, a responsive grant or strategic grantmaking to respond to a need without a specific request or application and/or outside of the grant review schedule, particularaly if the opportunity arises to support a community need in partnership with other granting organizations and/or individuals. Contact the Grantmaking and Program Officer, with questions about a grant outside of the grant review schedule.
