Grant Information

The Community Foundation is a non-profit community fund. It is a creative, cost-effective and tax-efficient way for people to invest in their community. The Community Foundation 's resources come from gifts made by individuals, companies, foundations, and charitable organizations.

Following an evaluation process, The Community Foundation awards grants based on identified community issues and the relative merit of the proposals received.
