Oregon Community Foundation
www.oregoncf.org
Due: February 1 and August 1

Community Grants program awards about 200 grants each year, mostly to small and moderate-sized nonprofits. Our belief is that meeting a broad range of locally-identified needs helps nonprofits improve the quality of life in their communities. The Community Grant program supports nonprofits that engage their communities in solving local problems. Preference is given to programs that (1) demonstrate a close fit with OCF funding priorities, (2) are preventive rather than remedial, and (3) have community support both in terms of volunteers and dollars.  Grant proposals range from modest short-term projects and specific, one-time capital expenses to extended projects that promise long-term benefits for Oregon. Most grants are between $5,000 and $35,000, but grants may range higher for multi-year projects with particular community impact. OCF receives about 500 proposals per year and funds about 200.
