Welcome to JCF Grantmaking!

For 2020, our Grant Committee and Board of Trustees decided to utilize our funding differently.  Therefore, we do not plan to have our regular Communities in Action, Community Spirit, Community Impact, or Collective Impact grant rounds.  We hope to return to our regular schedule next year.
