Community Foundation Accepting Applications for Regional Impact Grant
Deadline – August 1, 2019
The Community Foundation of NCW is now accepting applications for its Regional Impact Grant (RIG), the foundation’s largest funding opportunity open to 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations in Chelan, Douglas, and Okanogan Counties (excluding the Methow Valley).
The RIG is an annual, competitive grant that provides funding for organizations making a significant impact in their community. There is no maximum funding request, however awards are not likely to exceed $10,000. Requests can be for specific projects or general operations.
Each applicant is visited by a team of Community Foundation staff and board members to learn more about their organization and request, and evaluate awards based on several factors that demonstrate their need and potential impact in the community.
The foundation typically receives around 60 applications for the RIG, but only 25 are awarded. Recipients will receive a portion of their request, then participate in Give NCW, an online giving catalog that invites the public to donate and help organizations reach their full grant requests.
In 2018, the foundation awarded $240,000 in Regional Impact Grants to nonprofits, with an additional $203,000 in public donations through Give NCW.
Applicants must apply online, deadline is August 1, 2019. Give NCW starts Thanksgiving Day through December 31st. Grants are awarded in January 2020.
