Overview:

Giving Tree Grants

Through our signature Giving Tree Grant Program, the Community Foundation supports a broad range of projects with the potential for statewide impact and programs serving immediate local needs.

Each of our 28 affiliates offers Giving Tree grants at least once a year. Typically, these grants are available for a wide variety of charitable causes; sometimes, though, we’ll choose to target a particular need (like hunger relief or childhood nutrition).

Criteria

We'll take these factors into consideration when we evaluate your proposal:

  • Potential benefit to the particular population served and to the community as a whole.
  • Capacity of the organization to achieve the results outlined in the proposal.
  • Likelihood for success, including adequacy of objectives, methods, budget and time frame.
  • Evidence of a plan for evaluating the success of the project or program.
  • Proposals that have the promise of sustainability beyond the period of the grant. Evidence of cooperation or collaboration with other organizations working in the same field.
  • Evidence of local financial support (including but not limited to in-kind support) and the likelihood of future support for the project or program.
  • The innovation and creative approach manifested in the proposal.

Also, please note that if you're applying for funding on behalf of a statewide organization, your proposal is more likely to be successful if you can demonstrate that the project will be based in or have a direct impact on the county where you're applying.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
