2020 Community Recovery and Nonprofit Support Grants

For the 2020 Community Recovery and Nonprofit Support Grants Cycle, the Community Foundation offered both program and operating support requests. Operating support provides flexible funding to be used by the organization for any financial needs including, but not limited to: utilities, rent, programs and services, staff, etc. Program support requests are focused on a specific project or program the organization offers. The CFJC Grants Committee felt offering both of these application types would be beneficial to our nonprofit organizations who have been burdened by increased demands in services and changes in service provision due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Below you’ll find the listing of grants awarded.
