There are numerous ways to receive a grant from the Community Foundation, and almost any nonprofit organization in St. Clair County is eligible. We recommend that you contact the staff to help you carefully review the Guidelines and Procedures before completing an application. Grant applications may be submitted at any time during the year. Grant requests seeking $50,000+ will only be reviewed during the 4th quarter of the calendar year.
We accept grant applications year-round, but if you want it reviewed at the next scheduled meeting it MUST be submitted at least two weeks prior.
Grant recipients please see our Media Kit to download the appropriate logo for use in any recognition.
