Application of Intent
This provides our staff with an overview of your program that allows them to determine if your project fits CFOC grant priorities, timeline, and budget. Ideally, the Application of Intent should be submitted at least two weeks prior to the posted grant deadline, however, we can be flexible. Give us a call to discuss your proposal.
All organizations submitting an application of intent will be contacted within three business days or sooner. Following staff approval of the application of intent, you may begin working on your full application.
Because of limited financial resources at this time, the Foundation generally makes only one-time grant commitments up to $5,000. Longer-term commitments may be considered for initiatives that show exceptional promise for community impact.
The last step of the process is the submission of your detailed proposal, or grant application, for review by our volunteer Grant Review Committee and CFOC staff members. Grantees that desire feedback on their application are invited to submit a full proposal 15 days prior to the deadline. CFOC staff will review the proposal and offer suggestions. All final decisions are made by our Board of Trustees.
If your program is supported by a grant, you will be required to submit a final grant report to share the impact of your project.
