The Community Foundation proudly supports nonprofit organizations serving Park County communities. Through our Community Grants Program, the Foundation has issued over $500,000 in grants since 2007. In 2018 alone, the Community Foundation awarded $130,000 supporting a wide range of charitable activities including the arts, health and human services, education and much more.
The Community Foundation has been awarding annual grants since 2007 to provide support for community projects or general operating costs for local nonprofits and public entities. Funded proposals benefit the residents of Park County.
The Park County Community Foundation believes in the power of work together. The Foundation began awarding Collaborative Grants in 2017. This grant opportunity is designed to encourage area nonprofits to consider ways they can work together to serve more people by sharing resources and expertise. The Collaborative Grant provides financial support for two or more organizations applying for a common-purpose program or project.
The Community Foundation, on a pilot basis (2017 and 2018) is now offering the opportunity to apply for a Multi-Year Community Grant of up to three years of support. The Multi-Year Grant enables local nonprofit organizations to commit to a needed large-scale project that will benefit the residents of Park County.
Concerns central to the Community Foundation's evaluation of proposed projects include:
- The strength of local support for the project
- The strength of the applicant organizations
- Whether the project addresses a significant community need
- Sustainability and collaboration efforts
