2020 Seward Community Foundation Mini-Grant Program Applications Accepted Year-Round

Seward Community Foundation (SCF), an Affiliate of The Alaska Community Foundation (ACF), seeks applications from qualified, tax exempt 501(c)(3) organizations (or equivalents, such as: Tribal entities, schools, and faith-based organizations) that are based in or serve the communities of Seward and/or Moose Pass. Mini-grants of up to $1,000 are intended to be a flexible funding opportunity that may support a broad range of community needs throughout the year, including, but not limited to: health and wellness, education, the great outdoors, arts and culture, and community development.

Grant applications must be submitted online. The Seward Community Foundation’s Advisory Board reviews mini-grant applications at their monthly meeting and the deadline to apply is the first Wednesday of each month. Please review SCF Mini-Grant Guidelines to determine your eligibility before applying.
