The Mission and Outreach Commission makes distribution decisions based on a grant format, where organizations complete our grant request form to be considered for funding.
To be considered for a grant, an organization must be nonprofit registered 501c3 organizations. We prefer to fund organizations in which we can actively volunteer, or support in ways in addition to funding such as hold a drive for goods/supplies or serve meals. We do not give directly to individuals. Past donations have included:
The application process is simple: organizations are required to describe the work they do, give a budget for the program they wish to fund, and explain how the monies will be used in their program. Our annual deadline is September 30. To get started, download our grant request form.
In 2019, we awarded grants to these local organizations for a grand total of $38,000.
