The Community Foundation makes grants and gifts according to the grant priorities and guidelines.
Grant requests that fall outside of these guidelines may not be funded or acknowledged. The determination of meeting the criteria of the Foundation rests solely with the Board of Directors. The Foundation typically makes grants to tax exempt entities and for purposes other than to simply fund operational costs.
Scholarship funds can be set up in a benefactor’s name or the name of a loved one, so a deserving individual can get an education they might not otherwise receive.
The Community Foundation offers a simple solution to donors who want to start a scholarship program. For your convenience, we perform all the administrative duties and conform strictly to standards. Donors can contribute to existing funds or establish a new scholarship fund. Let us know how we can help you realize your charitable goals.
