Grantmaking & Initiatives
Thanks to the generosity of individuals, families, and businesses, our Foundation administers several opportunities for nonprofits in our region to apply for financial support. Each opportunity is unique. This is because the donors who established the funds have thoughtfully constructed areas of focus and parameters for support to fulfill their own visions for improving the quality of life in our community.
Types of Grants
- Community Action Grants: Twice a year the Foundation's competitive grant process matches community needs with grants available from the Foundation's Unrestricted and Field of Interest Funds.
- Special and Urgent Needs (SUN) Grants: SUN grants (up to $4,000) help organizations with non-budgeted, unforeseen, and time-sensitive emergencies or opportunities that arise from time to time and for which a quick response regarding Foundation support is necessary.
- Donor Advised Grants: Grants are made from Donor Advised Funds established by individuals who wish to remain actively involved with how their donation is distributed to the community.
