Change a Community through Grant Giving

Grant making is at the heart of our Community Foundation's work, showing our commitment to make a difference in this community. You and your organization may apply to receive funding through our grant-making process. Grants are awarded in the spring and in the fall.

A number of unrestricted funds in our Foundation allow grant money to be available for projects that have a lasting effect on our community. Donors to these funds trust our Foundation to distribute the funds wisely and to comprehensively assess community needs for the future.

You, as a non-profit entity, identify a concern in the community and define a means to meet that need, giving our Foundation the opportunity to hear directly from you and others like yourself in the community about issues as well as innovative solutions.

We examine the diverse needs, incorporate community input, and evaluate the best strategies to meet those needs. The potential value and impact of each organization are carefully considered before recipients are determined. The grants awarded may be large or small. They may be that vital "just in time" funding or that extra bit of local support to complete a project.

During the grant cycles, applications will be available for download here.
