Through grants and strategic community initiatives, The Community Foundation invests in the work of effective nonprofit organizations to help transform our region.

The Community Foundation invites nonprofit organizations to partner with us through bold ideas, creative projects and proactive philanthropy.

The Community Foundation awards grants of varying sizes based upon community need and organizational capacity to impact those needs. Along with the United Way, we offer one competitive grant cycle each year and encourage eligible nonprofits to apply to apply at this time to both the Community Foundation and the United Way.
