Grant Application and Process

The call for grant applications is publicly announced in advance of each grant cycle. Grant applications are only accepted within a designated timeframe, with specific dates posted on the Foundation website.

Proposals should closely follow Claremont Community Foundation (CCF) stated guidelines and instructions. Specific elements of grant proposals could include a case statement, project budget, and letters of support from cooperating individuals or organizations participating in or endorsing the project. Submission instructions and guidelines will be posted on the CCF website once a new grant cycle is announced.

Under current IRS regulations, Community Foundations are only allowed to award grants to nonprofit and government agencies, including education institutions.
