Now Accepting Applications for Helping Hands and Regional Impact Grants
The Community Foundation’s new Helping Hands Grant program provides up to $2,500 to support unexpected needs or special funding opportunities where a small investment could make a big difference. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis; grants are awarded every other month.
The Regional Impact Grant (RIG) program is the foundation’s largest funding opportunity for nonprofits in the NCW region, supporting general operating needs and/or specific projects through a competitive grant process.
In effort to make a greater impact, there is no longer a funding cap to grant requests. In addition, the RIG will now include a crowdfunding component called Give NCW that will allow the general public to learn about local nonprofit programs and help support them.
Application deadline is for Regional Impact Grant is September 1st.
