The Board of Directors’ Community Improvement Initiative, an SCF competitive grant program, will award up to $30,000 to one project in 2017. The projects submitted must create indelible, measurable impacts in the immediate and broader community; be supported and planned by a broad range of users; and have a clear, well-laid plan for success and sustainability.
Applications are due by April 1, 2017. One grant of $25,000 will be awarded annually. If the initial $25,000 is matched with another $25,000, the foundation will award an additional $5,000.
