Guidelines for Appropriate Grantmaking

How do I make a grant recommendation?

Grant recommendations from donors and/or advisors are welcome anytime. Simply log in to our donor portal to make your online recommendation.

Which organizations may I recommend?

You can recommend grants to qualified nonprofits (501c3), schools, government programs, and faith-based organizations. Donors and/or donor advisors are not permitted to receive any benefit in exchange for a grant.
To determine whether an entity is eligible to receive a grant, the Community Foundation relies on charitable guidelines provided by the IRS.

What are examples of prohibited types of benefits from making grant recommendations?
  • Membership Dues
  • Auction items
  • Tickets to charitable functions
  • Priority seating at sporting events
  • Scholarships through a Donor Advised Fund
  • Fulfilling legal binding personal pledges or obligations
When will grant recommendation payments be made?

The Community Foundation processes grant requests twice a month with a few exceptions. Below are the remaining 2024 closing dates with payments expected to be made the following week. Recommendations can be made anytime and fundholders can view the status of the recommendation via the portal. A team member will connect if there are any questions about the recommendation and, as always, if you have any questions, please connect with our team.
