The Foundation awards grants that address the evolving needs of our nonprofit organizations. Twice a year, we accept grant proposals from 501(C)(3) organizations. We support organizations that demonstrate the expertise and experience necessary to accomplish their mission operate under sound financial principles, have a future funding plan and a solid base of community support. Once awarded a grant, the recipient is required to sign a contract with the Foundation, which communicates that funds from the Foundation may only be used on the activities listed in the recipient’s grant proposal.
A written report on the funded project is due in the Foundation’s office nine months after funding is received. The report requests financial data, as well as specific information concerning progress toward the stated objectives of the project. Listed below are the nonprofits who received funding from the Community Fund, as well as our Component Funds over the last five years (2014-2018).
