Community grants are grants the foundation makes in response to needs and requests from the nonprofits in our community. They are supported by the foundation’s endowment and donors, and are awarded through a rigorous process of research, planning, due diligence and evaluation. Foundation staff consult with community volunteers whose expertise ensures a balanced approach to the review process.

Food Grants are available to support nonprofit organizations directly providing services in the areas of food. Grant amounts: up to $50,000.
