We look for funding partners who are well-run organizations making a meaningful impact in our community. In making grant choices, we prioritize strong leadership, effective planning, and client-centered program processes.

Eligible organizations will have 501(c)(3) status, and provide services in Hamilton County or primarily serve Hamilton County residents. We consider applications from faith-based organizations for programs or projects that serve a diverse group of people. Our Committee reviews grant applications three (3) times per year, and accepts applications in two funding areas: Program Development and Capital Expenditure. The Foundation considers one application per Funding Area from the same organization per calendar year.
