The Community Foundation of Switzerland County Inc. will be offering three types of grants in 2020.
Small Project Grants will be for requests of $2,000 and under. Applications can be submitted at any time throughout 2020 up until December 1st. Decisions on funding will be made by the Foundation within 15 days of submission.
Large Project Grants will be for requests over $2,000. The deadline to submit applications is no later than 3:00 p. m. on the first business day of April, July and October. Decisions on funding will be made by the Foundation within 60 days of the deadline. Large Project Grants will go through a more intensive evaluation process and require a meeting with the Grants Committee.
Lastly, Leadership Grants will be awarded to specifically cover fees for staff and volunteers to attend conferences, workshops and webinars or to bring in facilitators for board/staff retreats. Hotel accommodations may also be covered, but food or travel expenses will not be covered. Requests can be up to $1,500 per organization per calendar year. There are no deadlines and the program will continue until December 1, 2020 or until funding is depleted, whichever comes first. Decisions on funding will be made by the Foundation within 15 days of submission.
