Grant-Making Initiatives

Helping you help our region thrive

A portion of the Foundation’s grant-making funds are distributed through special programs or initiatives that seek to address a well-defined issue or need. These programs are created when the Foundation, often in partnership with other funders, sets aside resources to address specific, pressing issues, frequently over a multi-year period.  The funding criteria and application process vary by program and funds are often, but not always, distributed through competitive requests for proposals.

Below is a complete list of other opportunities for support from the Foundation. Please note that not all opportunities are open to application; we've highlighted those that are or will soon be accepting proposals.
