The Community Foundation has announced a new round of grant funding aimed at capacity-building projects and activities that will help local nonprofits serve the community more effectively.
The Community Foundation, which serves both Riverside and San Bernardino Counties, is now accepting online grant applications from nonprofits for capacity-building projects. The application period extends through March 30, 2018.
Nonprofit agencies are encouraged to apply for a one-year responsive grant, up to $10,000. To be eligible, the nonprofit must provide services within the inland region. Funding for these grants comes from the Community Foundation Impact Fund.
The Impact Fund allows the Foundation to respond to requests for support across a wide range of organizational capacity-building needs. Capacity-building support is intended to enable an organization to carry out its mission by strengthening capacity, effectiveness, and sustainability.
These funds should provide an opportunity for nonprofits to reflect, learn, and take action in developing short- and/or long-term, sustainable solutions to the challenges they face in addressing critical community needs.
Because there is a change to the Community Impact Fund grant online application process, technical workshops are being offered as follows:
