Nonprofits & Grants

Nonprofits & Grants

Improving quality of life in our community takes a network of strong nonprofits and community groups. Through our community grant funds, staff expertise and community connections, we help nonprofits become sustainable, experiment with new ideas, and make a greater impact in the areas they serve.

In addition to providing support for nonprofits, we grant more than $3 million each year to their growth and sustainability

Our Youth Philanthropy Council
grants $5,000 annually
