Capacity Building Grants - Grants designed over a three year period to help the organizational structure and planning of small not-for-profits.
Discretionary Grants - Individual board members nominate an organization to receive an award outside of legacy and capacity building grants.
Matching Grants - Award of funds based on the amount of funds raised by grantee. We use these to help established grantees: seed new projects or programs; revitalize or expand a funding base; and/ or leverage community involvement and philanthropic participation.
