2017 Focus Grants

These substantial grants provide support to effective and innovative nonprofit programs that are actively addressing the Community Foundation’s current focus: breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty in southwest Washington.

2017 Enrichment Grants

Significant grants for organizations addressing a broad range of issues that fall outside of the Community Foundation’s current focus area. This includes arts and culture, health, community building, environmental issues and education.

2017 Flexible Grants

This program provides smaller non-profits with the freedom to take risks, to innovate, to learn and adapt to organizational and community needs. The application is available year-round, and the grants are catalysts for building capacity, operations, programs and sponsorships.
