Submit a Funding Opportunity!

Our funding opportunities catalog is a new online directory of needs submitted to us by nonprofit organizations. We share these opportunities with our fundholders and other funding partners in hopes of their support. The catalog includes a brief summary about the organization and the project, program, or other need for which they are requesting support.

Requests should be for projects and programs with an immediate need for funding over the next 3-6 months of $2,500 or less, not including general support. Organizations can submit more than one request.

“It has been an unbelievable relationship. We’ve been able to figure out a way to utilize the Community Foundation’s resources for some great projects that have turned into stories that we’ve been able to tell in various ways about how amazing the organization has been in helping us reach our goal of building community.”

Kevin Crosley
President/CEO, Arc Herkimer

“Forging innovative partnerships is in our DNA. We asked ourselves, how can we support not only other clients and the work that we do, but other organizations? The Community Foundation really helped spur that and bring us together, and now the future is bright for what’s going to happen. To be in the heart of so much development that’s happening in the city is special. You can’t help but be excited to be a part of it.”
