The Community Impact Fund allows the Foundation to respond to requests for support across a wide-range of organizational capacity building needs. Capacity building support is intended to enable an organization to carry out its mission by strengthening capacity, effectiveness, and sustainability.  These funds should provide an opportunity for nonprofits to reflect, learn, and take action in developing short- and/or long-term, sustainable solutions to the challenges they face in addressing critical community needs.

Organizations interested in applying should visit the Grants Schedule for more information, including eligibility. Applications will be reviewed and grants awarded by August 31, 2018.
