OPEN grant funding available. You decide.


Throughout the year, Coastal Community Foundation staff recruit community volunteers to serve on grants committees. These volunteers are the ones who make evaluated recommendations as to where grant funding is allocated based on charitable programming and financial need criteria. Community members such as yourself meet to evaluate the nonprofits’ applications, conduct site visits (see picture) to ask appropriate questions, and then deliberate on the funding levels for eligible charities with the highest need and impact.

Community-based grantmaking is what makes us a “community” foundation.

This year’s OPEN grant competition has an approaching deadline of June 1, 2009. Eligible nonprofit agencies serving the Tricounty area in the fields of education, health, human needs, environment, the arts, and neighborhood and community development need apply. Last year’s funding level was at $250K for over forty area nonprofits.

If you are a nonprofit interested in this year’s OPEN grants competitive program fill out an application. If you are interested in volunteering on a grants committee throughout the year please contact us.

We can all pitch in to help the community.
