Adams County Grants

Please note that our 2018 grant guidelines have changed in order to provide strategic focus.

The Adams County Community Foundation has focused our 2018 Adams County Grants program into three areas based on recent community needs assessments, the availability of other community-based competitive grants and opportunities available to all nonprofits through individual giving.

  • Help nonprofits become efficient and effective at what they do by making grants of up to $15,000 to build the capacity of nonprofits that address the needs of our most vulnerable residents, with special consideration to those addressing affordable housing, transportation and youth.
  • Make a meaningful and sustained difference in people‚Äôs lives through grants of up to $15,000 to nonprofit organizations that help low-income residents move toward self-sufficiency.
  • Build a healthier community through grants of up to $15,000 for collaborative projects that address youth activities or transportation or affordable housing issues.

We will post our Grant Information Session schedule by mid-January 2018. The revised application packet for Adams County Grants will be posted at that time.

Please do not submit a proposal using the old forms.

The deadline for submission will be March 15, 2018.
