Grant Details
This is a new grant program, so it is designed to be broad enough to better understand our community’s needs and the potential programs that meet our priorities. At this time we 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.
