The Fulton County Community Foundation (FCCF) is offering many granting opportunities for charitable organizations in 2016. Applications for the entire year are available online or at the FCCF office. Some of the applications have no deadlines, and those seeking grant dollars are able to submit applications all year round.

The Fulton County Women’s Giving Circle is made up of nearly 100 local women, who pool their resources in order to support organizations and programs that benefit Fulton County. The mission of the Women’s Giving Circle is to inspire Fulton County women to create a better community. They make grants in the range of $800 - $2,400 and are awarded to several organizations. The deadline is April 15, 2016.

A Kewanna-Union Township Grant is especially for programs and projects within the Kewanna-Union Township community. Local businesses, residents and supporters of Kewanna-Union Township continue to contribute funds to make these grants possible. There is $2,500 available and the deadline is May 6, 2016.

No deadlines for Sustainability, Impact and Community Support Grants!

In an effort to be make grant dollars more accessible to community projects, the Community Foundation has decided to remove deadlines from many of their applications. Those seeking funding dollars for Sustainability, Impact or Community Grants may submitted applications throughout the year.

A “Sustainability Award” is an opportunity to reward organizations that have the foresight to plan for the future. A $5,000 endowment grant will be awarded competitively to Fulton County non profits demonstrating leadership, management, programming, and a desire to encourage donations to their own permanent endowment fund.

Impact Grants are for organizations seeking funds to support a large project up to $40,000. This grant is designed to support organizations that are planning a new project or program, or looking to expand their services. Charitable organizations that are interested in applying for an Impact Grant must first submit a Letter of Intent.

Also available are Community Support Grants which assist organizations seeking grants in the range of several hundred to several thousand dollars. These grants are designed to be awarded to many organizations and provide support throughout the community.

“We are excited to offer different types of grants that have no application deadline,” said Brian Johnson, Director of Development for the FCCF. “We typically award grants in November. With this new system, it will hopefully by more convenient for those who need funding earlier in the year,” Johnson added.
