We help nonprofits transform our community.

Grants from the Foundation

Many of our grants are made on the suggestion of our donors or fund advisors who do not accept grant requests. These funds are established and advised by individual donors, with final approval by the GWCF board of directors.

Throughout the year, GWCF offers several grant opportunities to qualified nonprofits serving our community.

Agency Funds for Nonprofits

When nonprofits establish a charitable fund with the Community Foundation, we handle complex gifts, paperwork, investments, and we can help your donors and their advisers with potential planned gifts.
