Community Grants

we are not currently accepting grant applications. check back in late spring 2020 for more details on our 2020 community grant cycle.

Through our Community Grants, the Community Foundation aims to build community capacity and support individual and community well-being in Thurston, Mason, and Lewis Counties. Offered once per year, the Community Foundation of South Puget Sound’s Community Grants program is a significant source of community funding. The 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.
