Covid-19 Relief and Year-end Critical Needs Grants Available

The Third Cycle grant application and Year-end Critical Needs grant application are now available. 

The Third Cycle Grant of 2020 will continue to prioritize requests centered on the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on your organization and those you serve.  Eligible requests include unrestricted operating support, program support, the purchase of furniture/fixtures/equipment, and in limited circumstances construction/renovation (e.g., creating isolation/quarantine spaces, improvements to ventilation, etc.) 

As in past years, the Community Foundation will be accepting applications from public charities and faith-based organizations in its 20-town service area for year-end critical-needs grants. Grants are made possible through the Draper Foundation Fund, and the Marion Wm. & Alice Edwards Fund.

The Third Cycle Grant application and the Year-end Critical Needs Grant application process will run concurrently with an October 12th application deadline.
