The Capital City Marathon Association (CCMA) is a nonprofit organization that has been providing a quality, local, all-volunteer running event since 1980. CCMA is committed to giving back to the community. To that end, they established the Capital City Marathon Endowment Fund, a component fund of the Community Foundation of South Puget Sound, in 2014. Every year the fund grows each year with proceeds from the marathon.
The available funding pool for the 2023 Grant Cycle is $10,000, and we expect to make up to 5 grant awards ranging from $1,000-$5,000.
Funding is available for projects in Lewis, Mason, and Thurston counties that will increase the understanding and practice of healthy living. To accomplish this goal, the grant supports projects that focus on one or more of the following:
Nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organizations, booster clubs, public schools and/or school districts, local municipal governments, and tribal organizations are eligible to be considered for this grant. If your organization does not fall under an eligible category, you must secure a fiscal sponsorship prior to submitting your application.
