The mission of the Community Foundation of Central Missouri is to improve lives in our communities by promoting private giving for public good. Since its beginning in 2010, the Community Foundation of Central Missouri (CFCM) has become an expert in listening and responding to community needs by providing creative charitable solutions and resources.
CFCM has prioritized funding to address many community needs. While the CFCM’s numerous donor and/or organization funds have their own mission and granting goals, the Community Granting Fund is the name of CFCM’s unrestricted fund, from which the Community Foundation board of directors distributes to chosen nonprofit agencies in central Missouri (Adair, Audrain, Boone, Callaway, Cole, Cooper, Howard, Macon, Moniteau, and Randolph counties).
The Community Foundation of Central Missouri wishes to partner with nonprofits that share our vision and passion for improving lives of central Missouri residents. We consider our grants to be community investments, and look for an “improved lives” return on the investments we make.
We want to help start promising programs, support collaborations, and leverage additional funding and resources to make grants in central Missouri that make a positive difference. CFCM gives first priority to proposals that address one or more of the following concerns— they are not listed in ranked order, as they are all equal in weight to CFCM:
- planned-giving and development support for nonprofits (fund raising software, temporary personnel, fund raising materials, etc.)
- human capacity development, especially for disadvantaged persons (equal opportunity, poverty reduction, schools, library, affordable housing, work force training, diversity training, etc.)
- senior adult services (transportation, delivery, health/respite care, home care, etc.)
- arts (dance, theater, music, visual arts, literary arts, etc.)
- environmental sustainability and public spaces (environment, recycling, food production—farmer’s markets, public transportation, parks, trails, conservation, neighborhoods, recreation, aesthetics, etc.)
- economic and public development (nonprofit efforts to spur local economies, projects to retain young families in smaller communities, etc.)
