    2023 Grant Cycles

    Nonprofits must first submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) in order to be considered for a grant.

    ALL ORGANIZATIONS WILL NEED TO “CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT” IN ORDER TO COMPLETE THEIR REGISTRATION PROCESS AND CREATE THEIR LOG-ON CREDENTIALS

    As a reminder, each nonprofit is eligible to submit two Letters of Intent per Grant Cycle.
    If more than two Letters of Intent are received from a single nonprofit, only the first two submitted will be accepted for review.

    Letters of Intent will be available on this page on the following dates:

    • Winter Grant Cycle – February 1st – 10th
    • Spring Grant Cycle – May 1st – 10th
    • Summer Grant Cycle – September 1st – 10th

    The Community Foundation will contact all nonprofits which submit an LOI to inform them if they have been selected to submit a grant application.

    If selected to apply, each nonprofit must complete their full application in the last 2 weeks of each month listed above in order to be considered for funding during that Grant Cycle.

    Organizations will be able to submit Letters of Intent until Noon on Friday, February 10th.
