Eligible nonprofits may submit a Letter of Intent to apply for grant funding of up to $100,000. We recommend reading our eligibility criteria before proceeding.
Member volunteers review and score Letters of Intent based on 4 criteria before selecting a subset of organizations to complete a full grant application:
1. Overall mission, vision of organization
2. Meeting unique need in the community
3. Proposed use of grant dollars
4. Shows clear programming specific to the focus area identified each year.
