Charlevoix County Community Foundation Welcomes Grant Proposals

The Charlevoix County Community Foundation announces the availability of grant dollars to support the work of area nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, and municipalities. The deadline to submit a grant proposal is Tuesday, October 1, 2019

Grant applications to support arts and culture, education, the environment, community and economic development, health and human services, recreation and youth are available by calling the Community Foundation office. Applicants must call to discuss their proposal to begin the application process. Eligible nonprofit organizations serve residents of Charlevoix County and work to enrich or improve life for local residents. Applications will be reviewed by advisory committees made up of community representatives. The Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) will review proposals that benefit young people in two or more communities in Charlevoix County.

The Community Foundation accepts contributions from donors and then uses a portion of the income earned from the investment of these gifts to help foster positive change in our area. In this way, our donors’ contributions meet our community needs, now and in the future – For good. For ever.®
