Community Enrichment: Before starting an application, all prospective applicants should first review our Community Enrichment Grant Guidelines, plus our Grants FAQ. Also please make sure that all past Community Enrichment and Special Focus grants to your organization have been fully closed and paid, and that your organization has submitted any required final reports. Then, please call the Community Foundation staff to discuss your potential project and your funding needs. We recommend that you contact us before starting your application, and at least one week in advance of the grant deadline. Once you’ve contacted us, click here to apply online. (If your request is $5,000 or less, remember to ask us if you can use the EZ App instead.)

Special Focus Grants: Special Focus Grants are awarded annually. Applications for these grants are usually due on the last Friday of April each year, and awarded on the first Thursday of June. This year, our deadline for our Special Focus Grants will be April 24, 2020.
