Grant Details

This is a new grant program, so it is designed to be broad enough to better understand the community’s needs and the potential programs that meet priorities. At this time they do not have a grant limit but anticipate they will fall below a one-time grant of $5,000.

That being said, the Community Foundation will consider larger grants or longer grant periods.
