About this funder:
21st Century Fund Grant
Supporting High-Impact Projects Across Western New York
The 21st Century Fund is a giving circle made up of over 300 separate member donors. One single $100,000 award is made to a 501(c)(3) non-profit every other year through a member driven vetting and voting process. The 21st Century Fund is unique in that successful applicants will make presentations to and interact with the membership at two separate large group events.
The 21st Century Fund welcomes applications for high-impact projects.
The amount available is one single $100,000 grant that will go to one nonprofit.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
- Grants are awarded only to organizations that have current Section 501(c)(3) status as determined by the Internal Revenue Service.
- Applicants must be located or delivering services in at least one of the eight counties of Western New York: Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, Genesee, Niagara, Orleans, and Wyoming.
- Successful 21st Century Fund awardees are not excluded from future application cycles as long as their prior 21st Century Fund grant is closed properly.
- Organizations are welcome to resubmit unsuccessful requests in future cycles as appropriate.
- Membership will consider all proposals. However, there is a strong preference for requests that are sustainable, requiring minimal future grant support of any type, and result in long-term significant impact on the eight-county region.
