Established to further address the impacts of COVID-19, strengthen the long-term efforts of Thurston, Mason, and Lewis County communities to rebuild, respond to emerging opportunities, help nonprofits adapt, and support creative new approaches and partnerships.
Community Grants fund nonprofit organizations that contribute to the social, health, and environmental well-being of our communities in many ways, including arts & culture, environment, health & wellness, education, basic needs, and community & civic engagement.
"At any age, we all have assets to share. Small amounts make a difference. And we really are all in this together.”

"I know I can pick up the phone and call the CommunityFoundation and they'll take our call... I've been incredibly impressed with the generosity and sense of togetherness I've encountered in the South Sound. This community is strong because of that and only because of that."
- Brian, Local Nonprofit Leader
