The Community Foundation of Teton Valley is pleased to announce that the Fall Competitive Grant Cycle is now open with grant applications due by 5pm on Friday, September 30, 2016. Local nonprofit organizations seeking grant funding for programs or services benefitting Teton Valley are welcome to apply. Eligible nonprofit organizations include 501c3 public charities, local schools and local government entities. New in 2016, the Community Foundation’s Grants Program will fund requests up to $5,000.
“We are grateful to our Tin Cup 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 Grants Program 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. Applications must be submitted electronically at www.cftetonvalley.org/nonprofits/grants by 5pm on September 30, 2016.
We have already granted over $30,000 in 2016!
