Nonprofit organizations serving Jefferson County encouraged to apply
–The Community Foundation of Madison and Jefferson County annual Competitive Grant Cycle is now open for applications. Online applications will be accepted until August 4, 2017 at Noon. During last year’s cycle, the Community Foundation awarded $254,000 to 31 nonprofit organizations that serve Jefferson County.
Competitive grants are made possible by Flexible Community Funds and Field of Interest Funds. Flexible Community Funds give the Community Foundation Grants Committee the flexibility to assist in fulfilling the ever-changing needs and dreams of Jefferson County’s citizens. Grants from Field of Interest Funds are chosen to benefit a specific interest, such as the arts, the environment, or youth development. Organizations must create a profile and complete the online request application available at www.cfmjc.org.
Established in 1991 by a group of local volunteers, the Community Foundation of Madison and Jefferson County fulfills the mission of building a strong, vibrant community by helping donors provide perpetual funding for the people, projects, and passions of Jefferson County.
