Did you know that nearly $2 million is distributed locally by the Blue Mountain Community Foundation each year in grants and scholarships?
We are currently serving the Walla Walla, Columbia, Garfield and Umatilla Counties, and we encourage you to help us spread the word. We have a very high need for support of our local nonprofit organizations, as well as our community's youth. Although we grant nearly $2 million, our need is much, much greater!
CURRENT GRANT OPPORTUNITY!
Warren Community Action Fund Grants
2017 is the first year that the newly established Warren Community Action Fund will begin making grants, primarily for Dayton, Columbia County and Waitsburg.
Warren Community Action Fund will consider requests from charitable 501 (c)(3) organizations, public agencies and religious organizations including churches*. The primary focus for grants is Dayton, Columbia County and northern Walla Walla County particularly Waitsburg.
It is anticipated that grants will be made to support programs that will improve the quality of life in the community in the areas of health, education, basic human needs, children and youth, agricultural education and training, historic preservation, scientific programs, arts and recreation and the environment, among others. Requests for support for capital, project or program and general operating support will be considered.
The Fund is particularly interested in projects and organizations about which there is some consensus in the community, demonstrated by financial and other support received from other sources.
The Fund is a project of the extended Warren Family to honor parents Robert and Nadine Warren.
Applications for grants ranging from $500 to $20,000 will be considered and are due by May 1, 2017 at midnight.
