Operating Grants: In an effort to ensure the nonprofit partners have as much flexibility to respond to the changes COVID-19 has created (and continues to create) in community, all grants in the 2021 Competitive Grant Program will be general operating grants. This means, funding will be unrestricted and grantees may use the funds as needed throughout the year. Program-based grants will not be accepted in 2021.
Operating Support Grants: The Foundation considers requests for General Operating Support to be awarded as core support or unrestricted grants. Organizations may use operating grants to cover day-to-day activities or ongoing expenses such as administrative salaries, utilities, office supplies, technology maintenance as well as for project costs, capital, technology purchases and professional development.
