Community Funds Grant Application

About Community Funds

We are aware of the greatest challenges and opportunities facing our communities now and over the next several years. Our Community Funds provide flexibility to creatively and adaptively meet emerging ongoing community needs. Learn more about our Community Funds.


How to Apply

We welcome applications from grant partners who are ready to accept significant and strategic investments to support transformational impact for their missions. Community Fund grant requests should be informed by data on the Community Development Regional Scorecard and/or address a community issue that appears on the Scorecard.

Nonprofit, educational, governmental, and Tribal entities across Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska and Leelanau Counties are eligible to apply by submitting an online application. Grant awards are available up to $20,000.


Grant Impact

The Community Foundation values data and how it informs both our ongoing impact and future grants. Post-grant reports will be sent to grant partners and are intended to provide feedback on our process and effectiveness as grantmakers. 


Application Deadline & Grant Decisions

Grant applications are due by 11:45pm on Wednesday, August 24, 2022. Initial review and due diligence will be done by staff and then reviewed by the Community Foundation's Grantmaking Committee. Grant awards will be made in October.


If you have questions or need assistance with the application process please contact Steve Wade, Vice President of Community Impact, at swade@gtrcf.org or 231-935-4066.
