CVCF is in its 11th grant cycle. For the 2021 grant cycle, up to $60,000 in funding may be awarded.
CVCF will be accepting proposals for programs which support COVID-19 recovery and relief efforts.
Grants must be administered by a 501(c)3 public charity, or an organization that is fiscally sponsored by a 501(c) 3, a school, or other government agency. CVCF does not make grants to supporting organizations or private, non-operating foundations.
If an organization is using a fiscal sponsor, a cooperative relationship between the two must be clearly demonstrated.
The project must be achievable within a 12-month time frame. Grants will be evaluated against the following bullet points (at a minimum):
Have an impact, offering measurable/scalable outcomes and ongoing verifiable benefit(s) to the community or the population served;
Have verifiable, competent, experienced, and credible organizational leadership;
Be culturally appropriate and sensitive;
Maximize the impact of the grant dollars.
