Our Grants Review Process

How it Works

Publicly, there is first a call for grants applications… and weeks later, an announcement of which local charities are receiving them.

But in between, there is a lot of meaningful activity to ensure that each application is fairly considered and that the successful grants recipients have met the criteria and shown their ability to have a significant community impact.
