Community Grants

NoW accepting applications for 2020

DUE DATE: SEPTEMBER 4

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.
