We provide so much more than grants. The Community Foundation is more than a gateway to grant giving. While we provide grants to nonprofits, we also support them after the funding cycle by coaching and developing the leadership they need to build a strong organization that is part of a greater network of like organizations in the region. Our goal is to strengthen the infrastructure of nonprofit agencies capable of affecting the greatest change in our community – a mission that extends beyond funding and involves continual and meaningful conversation and interaction.
Agencies are selected by Foundation leadership to partner around a specific regional initiative. This partnership can include funding to support the work of the chosen agencies.
Instead of traditional proposals, our Request for Ideas (RFI) are designed to hone in on the impact of the work of nonprofits. Submitted through our online portal, our goal in this process is to help donors meet their philanthropic goals.
