Fund Purpose:
These funds allow the Foundation to make grants to address our most pressing community needs.

Fund Story:
It’s because of uncertain times like this that we created our GIVE TO GRANT COMMUNITY IMPACT FUND many years ago. This Fund provides flexible financial support to trusted nonprofit partners across Grant County who are responding to critical needs. The Fund also allows the Community Foundation Board to be nimble in their response to addressing our community’s most pressing and emerging needs, specifically with organizations working with our most vulnerable citizens.

COVID-19 Rapid Response Grants:
To expedite our regular granting procedures in this evolving situation, our Board of Directors has chosen to distribute awards from the GIVE TO GRANT COMMUNITY IMPACT FUND utilizing a method called “rapid response grantmaking”. Our COVID-19 Rapid Response Grants will sustain and develop vital community services for residents who stand to lose the most from the unfolding emergency. This is why the ability to rapidly provide flexible resources to nonprofit organizations who are working on the frontlines, engaging and supporting individuals impacted by COVID-19 and the broader ramifications of this health crisis, will be paramount.

The Rapid Response Grant application is now CLOSED.
