Grants Available Through Application

Community Impact Grants

Community Impact Grants are grants which stimulate and help launch new programs or projects; help focus, enhance and/or expand an organization’s existing programs and services; or provide an investment in a large capital project which is a critical enhancement to the mission of the nonprofit organization. There is a preference for projects or programs that support marginalized members of the communities we serve.

Opportunity Grants

Opportunity Grants apply to program or capital projects that have a grant request amount under $10,000.

These grants focus on community impact. Additionally, projects or programs supporting marginalized members of the communities we serve will be given preference.

Organizational Development Grants

Organizational Development Grants offer support for nonprofits to retain a consultant to help strengthen their organization, increasing their capacity to govern and achieve long term sustainability.

GrantAdvisor is a website that allows grant applicants, grantees, and others to share their first-hand experiences working with funders and for funders to respond on the record. Feedback is collected anonymously with the goal of improving grantmaker-grantee relationships and strengthening the fields in which funders work.

If you received a grant from Community Foundation in the past few years, we encourage you to complete a survey to help other nonprofit organizations learn from your experience — and to help us improve our processes.
