      Grants

                   This is our primary grant program through which we award approximately $2 million in grants every year.  The median grant award is $45,000 and multi-year grants are seldom awarded.  Applications begin with a letter of inquiry and are accepted three times a year.  Learn More

      Cash Flow Loans

        This program offers low interest cash flow loans to qualifying nonprofits who are experiencing delayed receivables, such as late grant payments or other reimbursable expenses.  Applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year.  Learn More

      Discretionary Grants

        These are smaller, but often more responsive grants.  Awards  range from $500 to $2,500.  Applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year.  Learn More
