Registered 501(c)(3) nonprofits may submit a Letter of Intent to outline proposed projects seeking competitive grants funding.
Applicants are required to read the guidelines before starting a proposal.
Grants are awarded on a schedule throughout the year, based on targeted focus areas:
Education: We know that academic opportunities prepare people of all ages for higher education and employment. Grants will be awarded to organizations that support effective educational programs that help our communities continue to grow and better prepare our workforce for the future.
Arts and Culture: We believe that thriving arts and cultural activities are a key component to vibrant and strong communities. Grants will be awarded to organizations that provide access to and stimulate an appreciation of our community’s artistic and cultural life.
Health and/or Human Services: We know that a healthy community is strengthened by a shared belief in helping our neighbors in need. Grants will be awarded to organizations that promote wellness and/or benefit to those suffering from poverty, discrimination and violence.
Environmental Restoration and/or Animal Welfare: We believe it is important to invest in efforts to preserve, protect and enhance the natural environment and the wellbeing of animals. Grants will be awarded to organizations that improve the quality of our environment and/or benefit our animal community.
Emerging Needs: We know that there are many creative solutions to community issues. Grants will be awarded to organizations that provide a program, project or investment that is time-sensitive and new to the organization. Applications for ongoing programming will be considered in the appropriate focus area cycle.
