Local Community grants range from a minimum of $250 to a maximum of $5,000. Eligible nonprofit organizations must operate on the local level (or be an affiliate/chapter of a larger organization that operates locally) and directly benefit the service area of the facility from which they are requesting funding.

Organizations may only submit a total number of 25 applications and/or receive up to 25 grants within the 2019 grant cycle.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
