Our area's nonprofit organizations are our partners in making life better for all of us. We're pleased to be able to provide funding through our grantmaking that enables these organizations to be more effective in carrying out their missions and to address critical needs in the community.
In an effort to better address the growing needs of our local nonprofits, the Foundation has recently made changes to its annual grant cycles. The Foundation will now offer two different cycles during the year, with proposals due on April 1st and October 1st. The reduction in the number of cycles will allow the Foundation to give slightly larger grant awards to accommodate project expansions and the growing costs of nonprofit programs.
Along with the change in the Foundation’s grant cycles, we are also introducing a new application and an updated proposal process. Grant guidelines and the updated application information can be picked up at the Foundation’s office at 100 Putnam Street, Downtown Marietta.
