Community Grants

Donors are driving generational changes in their communities. We have ideas we'd like to discuss with you.

Each September, the Foundation conducts a grant cycle, seeking worthy proposals from the nonprofit organizations in our community.  Any nonprofit can apply.  Grants are awarded in December.

A group of local residents evaluate the proposals and recommend to our board the ones that address significant needs or opportunities.

Successful applications demonstrate:

  • Measurable impact on the community
  • Sustainability
  • Collaboration with other organizations
  • An ability to leverage our grant into additional funding

Previous grants have been awarded to Restoration Rome, YMCA, Summit Quest, Young Life, LivingProof, the Davies Homeless Shelter, Elevation House, and Rome’s Free Clinic.
