Staff members will provide updates on the Community Foundation’s 2017 Community Grants program.

There will also be time for attendees to ask questions and learn more about the process.

Staff will be available after the sessions to discuss individual applicant proposal ideas. Individuals can also schedule a time to meet with staff outside of these sessions by calling 360-705-3340.

The Community Foundation is currently accepting applications for our 2017 Community Grants program. Applicants must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization located in or serving Thurston, Mason, and/or Lewis Counties. Total awards for this grant cycle will be approximately $350,000.

The Community Foundation’s Community Grants program is a significant source of community funding. The Foundation’s discretionary grants program is made possible by generous donors who have contributed unrestricted and broadly defined area-of- interest gifts which allow us to respond to the community’s changing opportunities and challenges over time. Our service area is Thurston, Mason, and Lewis counties.

The sessions are open to the public, but RSVP is encouraged. To register, visit The Community Foundation of South Puget Sound website or email
