The Foundation offers three grant programs:

The Fall Grant cycle is for requests over $500.  Applications are available after August 1.  The deadline to file is the 3rd Friday in September.

The Mini Grant cycle is for requests of $500 or less.  Applications are accepted anytime.

The Run For It Grant campaign kicks off April 1 and culminates with a 2k/5k race the last Saturday in September.  No application required – just fill out an entry form, register or join a team, and walk or run for it.  Grants reward efforts to raise awareness and support for your favorite community cause or charity.

The income generated by the following  Endowed Funds (and other unrestricted income) provides grant support according to distribution guidelines.  Our goal is to distribute 5% of the Total Market Value annually which may vary depending on market conditions.
