2022 Community Impact Program & Operational Support Grants
Community Gardening

The Jackson Community Foundation’s Grant Committee prioritizes funding for programs, services, and systems change initiatives that provide opportunities for learning, action, and advocacy aimed at advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in Jackson County.  

 

In this grant round, we are accepting program and operating grant applications.  Though they share the same deadline, each grant type has a separate application and budget form.  Applicants can only submit one application in this grant round.

 

Beginning in 2022, the JCF Grant Committee is pleased to operate under our new “Community Needs Endowment Fund Grantmaking Priority, Aims and Guidelines.”  Before applying, we strongly encourage all applicants to read through this document which can be found below in “Grant Information and Resources.”

PROGRAM GRANT:

Limit requests to $20,000 for programs benefitting the residents of Jackson County, Michigan.  Nonprofit 501(c)3 organizations, school districts, governmental entities (for programs, goods or services that are not funded through taxpayer dollars), and churches (for nonreligious purposes) are eligible to apply.
