C3F is Accepting Grant Applications 

The Charlevoix County Community Foundation and the Petoskey-Harbor Springs Area Community Foundation announce the availability of grant dollars to support the work of area nonprofit organizations to foster positive change and enrich our communities. The deadline to submit a grant proposal is Monday, October 2, 2017. Eligible organizations include: government, schools, and nonprofits organizations serving residents of Charlevoix and/or Emmet County. Applicants must call their respective community foundation office to begin the process. If interested, applicants are encouraged to call to discuss their proposal at least one week prior to the deadline. Proposals will be reviewed by advisory committees made up of community representatives. The youth advisory committees will review proposals that benefit young people. Committee recommendations will be forwarded to the respective Boards of Trustees.

For the past 25 years, the community foundations have supported programs and projects in the areas of: arts and culture, education, the environment, civic improvement, the economy, health/human services, recreation and youth. The community foundations receive contributions from donors, then use the invested income to enrich and improve our communities. In this way, our donors’ contributions meet community needs, now and in the future – For good. For ever.® To apply for a grant or for more information, call or email your local community foundation.
