Community Grant Programs: Nonprofit Facilities Improvement
Next grant application deadline: January 15. Online application available now.
We believe suitable nonprofit facilities are critical to programs and services. Facilities that provide appropriate space and are efficiently and attractively designed can bring important benefits to clients, staff and the community.
Our Community Grants for Facilities focus on supporting major capital projects and capital campaigns that are transformative for the organization and the communities it serves. Organizations requesting facilities grants should support one of the other areas of Foundation work:
- Arts and Culture
- Health and Human Services.
We seek projects that will reduce local nonprofits’ building operating costs over the long term and minimize the negative environmental impacts associated with construction and operation.
We encourage “green” building practices that can cut heating and cooling costs, save water and reduce pollution. We give strong preference to facility grants that incorporate these types of building practices.
