The Community Foundation of Teton Valley is accepting grant applications from local nonprofit organizations, now through Friday, September 4, 2015 at 5:00 PM. Eligible nonprofit organizations include 501c3 public charities, local schools and local government entities. The Community Foundation’s Grants Program funds requests up to $2,500 per year for local nonprofit organizations, on an ongoing basis, as funds allow. The Grants Committee may consider grants larger than $2,500 for exceptional projects, or for collaborations involving more than one local nonprofit organization.
“We are very grateful to our Challengers and Community Foundation Donors who make our grants program possible each year through their gifts. Teton Valley would be a much different place without our nonprofit organizations. We are proud to support their compelling work and help further their impact within our community,” said Carrie Mowrey, Executive Director of the Community Foundation of Teton Valley.
The Community Foundation supports a wide variety of proposals, including those seeking to address issues in the arts, environment, social services, education, recreation, animal care and civic arenas. The Community Foundation financially supports local nonprofits with strategic planning, programs, capital projects, equipment purchases, pilot projects, and more. Applicants must demonstrate a community need and granted funds must directly benefit residents of Teton Valley. New for the Fall Grant Cycle, applications will be submitted electronically at www.cftetonvalley.org/nonprofits/grants.
