Grants are awarded on an annual basis to qualified nonprofits and governmental agencies that have completed a rigorous application process. Each grant applicant is assigned a liaison from the Foundation’s Board of Directors, who meets with the organization to discuss the application process, their services, and the needs they address. In addition, a comprehensive review of the organization’s governance and finances ensures that funds go where they will make the greatest impact in our community.

These annual grants provide funds for new initiatives and continuing programs. The Foundation also offers proactive grants where unique needs and opportunities have been identified.
