The 2024 Community Grant Program will open April 1 for Arts & Creativity, Basic Needs and Economic Opportunity projects, and April 15 for Health & Wellbeing and Youth & Families.

The Community Grant Program is our signature program, awarding close to $2 million annually across five strategic focus areas with both discrete project/programming and general operating support.

The program is designed to be responsive and flexible and utilizes many trust-based philanthropic principles. We strive for this approach to take less total time for applicants, be more interactive, and provide a different method for storytelling.
