No deadlines for Sustainability, Impact and Community Support Grants!

In an effort to 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 submit 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.

Grant applications and guidelines can be downloaded from the links offered on this page.
