Grant & Scholarship Opportunities
As a community foundation, we are first and foremost stewards of our donors’ dollars. That means we devote considerable time to learning about the most pressing needs in our communities and helping donors find the best way to use their generous dollars. Donor funds are distributed either through grants or scholarships.
We distribute funds in three major categories
- Competitive grants: Primarily for nonprofits and similar organizations based on pre-set requirements.
- Donor advised grants: Awarded to nonprofits and similar organizations, with consideration given to recommendations from our donors.
- Scholarships: Distributed to individuals for educational purposes based on pre-set criteria and awarded through a committee process.
