Emergency Funding Requests

The Community Outreach Committee assesses community needs and initiates Community Impact Projects and Community Grants in response to significant opportunities within the community. These opportunities and issues vary, and can be anything from a center that lost its air conditioning to a food kitchen that had a refrigerator break. Typically, when these problems arise, we can have an impact on helping a nonprofit continue their critical mission. Assistance can include the distribution of monetary grants to the emergency through our Community Assistance Fund (up to $5,000) or support through drives and collections. Applications are received throughout the year.

Applications are open throughout the year. Please see below to apply.
