Deadline to Apply

Through the program, grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded in support of nonprofit organizations operating on the local level (or an affiliate/chapter of a larger organization that operates locally) and directly benefit the service area of the facility from which they are requesting funding. Organizations may apply in eight areas: community and economic development, diversity and inclusion, education, environmental sustainability, health and human service, hunger relief and healthy eating, public safety, and quality of life.
