Our Grants Programs

The Community Foundation sponsors two discretionary grantmaking programs. One program, All Kids Thrive, is the Community Foundation’s strategic grantmaking focus area, and it will seek to address the needs of children from 0 to age 25, the technical end of adolescence. Learn more here.

The other program, Community Impact Grants, represents the Community Foundation’s responsive grantmaking program, and is for organizations whose initiatives transform the lives of low-income individuals, families and communities, but may or may not specifically target children and adolescents. This program invites nonprofits to submit applications that fit the funding guidelines. The Community Foundation anticipates this grant opportunity to be highly competitive since only 25 percent of the available annual grantmaking funds will be allocated for this purpose. Funding in one year should not be construed as funding in a subsequent year for the same initiative. Guidelines for our  2017 Community Impact Grants are available here. Check back soon for information about our 2018 Community Impact grants.
