Charlotte Community Foundation: Grants In Response to the COVID-19 Crisis

As the community’s Center for Philanthropy, the Charlotte Community Foundation places a top priority on annual grant making. We seek to support local nonprofit organizations through investments that will create a positive impact on the citizens of Charlotte County.

These investments are designed to enhance nonprofit programs or services that will deliver measurable improvements in output and a demonstrable outcome for those served. We also encourage partnerships and collaborations between local organizations to maximize the collective impact of our grant making.

Due to the COVID-19 Crisis, CCF has adapted our existing Community Investment Grants process and instituted an interim grant cycle. In order to be eligible for this funding, organizations and programs must be able to demonstrate COVID-19 Crisis impacted need with measurable outcomes.

The Charlotte Community Foundation will award individual grants up to $15,000 to nonprofits. Consideration is given to the following in determining the merits and priority of an application for funding:

  • Program / services proposed are community priorities and factual and/or statistical information exists that supports the priority.
  • Program / services addresses emerging community needs, answers existing ones more effectively, or allows for a wider constituency.
  • Program /services does not duplicate and is distinctive from other existing efforts.
  • The nonprofit possesses the capability to achieve the program / services expected results.
  • The expected outcomes are clearly defined, measurable and will be documented to primarily benefit Charlotte County.
  • The program’s / services’ degree of potential impact to the community or specific constituents.
  • Program / services includes a partnership or collaboration between organizations which results in innovative solutions and stronger results.
  • Program / services has secured or are likely to secure additional funding.
  • Program / services can demonstrate evidence of strategic growth towards future program / service sustainability.
  • Needed operational funding can be applied for to help with current budgeted expenses, not to include overhead.
  • Grant funding should be expended within 90 days with a final report due at 180 days of receiving funds. In the event an agency will not be able to expend the funds within the first 90 days, a written request within the time allotted will be submitted for approval to the CCF Board of Directors. Unspent funds will be returned to CCF.
