Grand Rapids Community Foundation has been listening to our partners to better align our Fund for Community Good grantmaking priorities and application process with our commitment to racial, social and economic justice. To formalize this shift, we are taking some time to have critical conversations and to update our guidelines.
The purpose of our guidelines is to provide more clarity on the type of grant partnerships that best align with our priorities.
We will begin accepting new pre-applications for grant requests on July 1, 2020, under these new guidelines. In the meantime, we will complete our current application process with nonprofits who have already submitted materials. We will not be accepting new pre-applications in the interim.
