Unrestricted Grant Cycle

2023 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 2023 Grant Guidelines, including eligibility requirements, are also included under the “How to Apply” tab.

Unrestricted Spring Grant Cycle 

Grant applications are due Monday, April 10 by 5 p.m.

Unrestricted Fall Grant Cycle 

Grant applications are due Monday, October 9 by 5 p.m.
