Grant Opportunities

Our Community Foundation offers a number of grant opportunities that are open to nonprofits serving Blount, Jefferson, Shelby, St. Clair and Walker Counties. These grants focus on five priority areas that guide our leadership, grantmaking and community support for the next decade.

No special request for proposal (RFP) opportunities are planned for this cycle but we will continue to offer general operating support grants on a limited basis to smaller organizations (up to $100K income) that demonstrate need. We recommend that you review our Grantmaking Guidelines before beginning the application process
