Where do our grant dollars come from?

Community Needs Fund – Where do our dollars come from?

More than $700,000 in Community Needs Funds were recommended by our Board for FY2018 grantmaking. Where do our Community Needs funds come from?  Over 100 donors have set up an Unrestricted or Field-of-Interest Funds at the Community Foundation.  They can be assured that their grant dollars will support the needs in Collier County.

How do we do it? By creating a named fund for Collier County, our staff and community volunteers award grants with the best chance for greatest outcomes, as described in our Vital Signs report.

Grants are competitive and require the nonprofit to complete a profile in the Foundation’s NONPROFIT DIRECTORY and also submit an online application.
