The Community Foundation makes grants that promote and support community initiatives and charitable organizations. We bring local knowledge, experience and a network of community relationships to our grant making. In making its grant decisions, the Foundation relies on the expert advice of our Community Investment Committee, which is made up of Foundation Board Members and community members who are knowledgeable about local issues and activities. Their grant recommendations are presented to the Foundation’s Board of Directors for final approval.

Visit the grant descriptions below to view the type of grants available. To ensure you do not miss a funding opportunity, we encourage community organizations to subscribe to our social media or visit this web page monthly to view our granting schedule.
