2021 Community Foundation Grantmaking Deadline
Event Category 

As our community continues to contend with the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have intentionally evolved our grantmaking priorities and cycles to provide more nimble funding, center grant awards around equity and serve populations disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. The Community Impact team highlighted elements of our 2021 Grant Programs in a webinar and you can find the 2021 Leadership Grant Priorities here.

Upcoming application deadline:

Leadership Grant Cycle 2: Letter of Intent due April 14 at noon, finalists notified April 23, full applications due May 17 at 4 p.m., grants approved June 17. 

Capacity Building Grants are accepted on a rolling basis.

We request interested applicants reach out to the Community Impact team to discuss project goals and alignment prior to applying. Please contact Bridgett Robinson to schedule a conversation.
