Please note that
we will not be accepting grant proposals in February, 2013. We will
spend the next few months assessing and refining our grantmaking
strategy. We look forward to sharing our next steps with you in the spring. Learn more.

Given our limited grantmaking resources, we want to be as respectful
of your time and efforts as possible. To that end, we've created a questionnaire to determine if your organization and activity are eligible
to receive Community Grants.
In addition to our grantmaking, we work collaboratively with
an extensive variety of local partners, from nonprofit service providers
to advocacy groups, public agencies and businesses. If you do not fit
our grantmaking guidelines but are working to Transform Education,
Promote Economic Vitality, and Build Social Capital, let us hear from
As always, if you have questions we invite
you to contact us directly.
