We look to local nonprofits to help us lead the way toward greater responsiveness – when and where the needs are most urgent. Together, we’re a community catalyst that inspires ideas and ignites action. 

 
Funding areas include health and human services, education, civic engagement, arts and culture, and animals and the environment. Competitive grant cycles – most with a unique funding focus identified annually – are listed below; please note application deadlines, as well as links to specific application guidelines.
 
The Community Foundation does accept unsolicited requests for funding, letters of interest or proposals outside of these grant cycles:

Due dates

Proposals for Community Trust

This year’s Community Trust process will be broken out into two review periods:  One for proposals focused on Arts & Culture, Education, or Environment & the Animals (CT 1).  The other for Health & Human Services or Civic Engagement proposals (CT 2).  Please pay attention to the deadline for proposals for the area for which you’d like to apply.  Late proposals will not be accepted.

CT1

CT2
Sept. 25, 2017
Proposals for Open Door Fund June 27, 2017
Proposals for 15 Forever Fund 2018 TBA
Proposals for BRAVO Fund 2018 TBA
Proposals for Veterans Fund

Additionally, the Community Foundation offers a number of Donor-Advised Funds (DAFs), each with its own grantmaking capacity and process. Many function in the same way a family foundation would, with the Community Foundation serving as support staff. DAFs make grants locally, nationally or internationally – fundholders learn about local grantmaking opportunities by working with foundation staff who make recommendations from submitted proposals.
 
Grantees must complete a grant report one year after the grant is received. If you’ve already received a grant from the Community Foundation, you must include a grant update along with new requests for funding. Additionally, organizations that receive a grant of $20K or more  from a Donor-Advised Fund are required to complete a grant report, submitted electronically, no later than 12 months from the grant date.
