Available Grants

Unrestricted Grant Cycle

2024 Grantmaking

Each year through our unrestricted and field of interest funds, we are able to make grants available through these competitive grant cycles. Areas of granting are Arts & Culture, Community Development, Education, Health, Historical, Human Services and Youth.

Because of what we heard during our 2019 Nonprofit Listening Series and the Community Chats, Early Childhood Education is an area of special emphasis.

The 2024 Grant Guidelines, including eligibility requirements, are also included under the “How to Apply” tab.

They will share the types of funding they offer, their funding focus areas, the process for applying and more.
