Apply for a Grant

There are two ways to get a grant from the Community Foundation:

Donor-recommended grants:

The Community Foundation stewards a variety of donor advised funds. Grants are awarded from a donor advised fund based upon recommendations from the donors who set up the fund or their designated representatives.

Competitive grants

The Community Foundation has several funds that award grants on a competitive basis. We have unrestricted grant funds and funds with unique focus areas. The application requirements are the same. (view guidelines here)

If your request fits the eligibility criteria, please fill out the Grant Application and submit with the Federal Tax Identification number or fiscal sponsorship information. We have one grant cycle. All application must be received between January 1 and March 31st of the current year. Applications received after March 31 will be returned to you.

We also sponsor Giving Tuesday and encourage all non-profits to partner with us. We offer matching grant opportunities. Visit www.giveamador.org for more information.
