Grant Overview and Focus Areas

Annual Community Grants Program

Central to the work of the Community Foundation is our ability to connect those care to causes that matter to support sustainable change through our granting programs. Our annual granting program supports local nonprofit organizations working to address local needs and making our county a better place to live for all residents. The 2023 Community Grant Cycle has concluded. Information about the 2024 Cycle will be available in late spring of 2024.


Other Grants Programs

At the Community Foundation of Johnson County, we know that a thriving community simply cannot exist where all are not welcomed, invited to the table, protected, and regarded as equal. To support this important work, our board of directors established the Inclusive Johnson County Fund in the summer of 2020. The fund provides financial support for community outreach and education, promote diversity and inclusion within nonprofit organizations, support cultural events, and much more. The 2023 Inclusive Johnson County Fund Grant applications are closed.

The Coralville Community Fund held at the Community Foundation of Johnson County awards grants on an annual basis. The 2023 grant application is closed.
