Many of our grants to nonprofits are recommended by donors from their Donor Advised Funds. Donors make their recommendations based on their interests, and the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay assures that the recommended organizations meet the criteria to receive a grant.

The Foundation also helps donors identify specific organizations or programs that meet their charitable interests. Though the Foundation may make donors aware of worthy grant applications that could not be funded by the overall fund, donor advised funds do not accept applications directly.
