Resilience Fund Grants
2021 Resilience Fund Grants open may 5, 2021
The Resilience Fund was established to further address the impacts of COVID-19, strengthen our region’s long-term efforts to rebuild, respond to emerging opportunities, help nonprofits adapt, and support creative new approaches and partnerships. The Resilience Fund is relatively small compared to public COVID-19 relief funding. However, as a community-based funder, the Community Foundation is uniquely positioned to listen, respond, fill gaps, support those in our communities who may otherwise be left out, and fund solutions that do not fit neatly into government categories.

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. 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.
Our goal for the program is to make grants to many of the nonprofit organizations that contribute to the social, health, and environmental well-being of our communities including arts and culture, environment, health and wellness, education, economic opportunity, basic needs and human services, and community and civic engagement.
