The Community Foundation provides grant dollars to nonprofits for programs that have measurable results in addressing changing community needs and grants dollars to support nonprofit capacity building to ensure that nonprofits have the tools needed to operate using best practices.
We also work with Community Grantmakers who have established a Field-of-Interest Fund at the Community Foundation to support their grant program. Deadlines will be announced throughout the 2019 fiscal year.
All applicants must complete a Profile in the NONPROFIT DIRECTORY, a key resource for donors and committee members when reviewing your organization’s application. Please contact Dawn Grundeman at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need log-in credentials to create a new Profile or click on “forgot password” if you need a new password. Your NONPROFIT PROFILE is used as the cover page for your application. The information gives grant committee members a better understanding of the scope of your organization, its mission, programs, and long-term goals. Tip – use brief statements or bullet points to describe your programs and long-term goals whenever possible.
