Grant Opportunities

Grant OpportunitiesOur program grants are driven by The Foundation’s mission, values, and focus on results that will bring lasting benefits to each community in our region. In 2011, The Foundation granted program grants of $1.2 million to our communities, in addition to the over $60 million in Donor Advised Fund Grants.

Program are distributed through a competitive process across specific subject areas, each headed by Working Groups of committed volunteers. Subject areas include arts and culture, the environment, health & human services, and science & technology.
