The Community Foundation of Pulaski County, Inc. has multiple grants available to serve the needs of our community. CFPC awards grants to charitable programs and projects benefiting Pulaski County.
Grants are funded by our unrestricted and field of interest funds. Applications that meet the requirements of field of interest funds* will be awarded grants from those funds first, supplemented by unrestricted funds as necessary. There is currently $60,000 available as of May 2023 in unrestricted dollars for grant support in 2023. (No cap restrictions on amount requested).
Before applying for a grant, please review the 2023 Grant Guidelines to ensure your grant project is eligible. Consideration is given to project goals, community value and impact, and project management. Applicants are encouraged to contact the CFPC office to discuss the grant project prior to applying.
Application deadlines are March 31, July 1, and October 1, 2023. The CFPC Grants Committee makes funding recommendations to the Board of Directors. Final decisions are generally made within 40 days of each deadline.
Following submission of an application, Community Foundation staff may contact applicants to schedule a site visit or interview as deemed appropriate.
