Responsive Grants Available to Nonprofits from The Community Foundation

The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven, the region’s permanent endowment and largest grantmaker to local nonprofits, is accepting grant applications from eligible nonprofit organizations through March 27, 2015 for its Responsive Grants process. Responsive Grants are generally awarded to address operating, programmatic or capacity building needs. Amounts vary from $7,500 and up; eligibility restrictions apply, including adherence to The Community Foundation’s anti-discrimination policy. Applicants who are unfamiliar with the grant process are encouraged to register for an informational webinar on February 11, 2015 at 1:00 – 3:00 pm. For complete details and to apply online, visit www.cfgnh.org/grants.

Generally more than $2 million in multi-year grants is awarded through The Community Foundation’s Responsive Grant process, which occurs in two-stages and takes approximately six months to complete.  Responsive Grants represent only one element of The Foundation’s overall grantmaking, which has exceeded $20 million in recent years. 

Thanks to the generosity of three generations of donors, The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven awarded $21 million in grants and distributions in 2013 and has an endowment of over $430 million comprising more than 830 individually named funds. In addition to its grantmaking, The Community Foundation helps build a stronger community by taking measures to improve student achievement, reduce New Haven’s infant mortality rate, promote local philanthropy through www.giveGreater.org and encourage community awareness on issues important to our region.

What Does Dr. MLK, Jr. Mean to You?

Each month, we pose a question to the OneLISC family, and share the responses reflecting our diverse range of voices and backgrounds. To mark Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s 92nd birthday, this month’s Reflections from the Field consider his life and work and his legacy today. The reflections register anger and dismay and exhaustion, but also hope, power and a commitment to keep working, to keep exerting good, strong pressure to shape our moral universe.
