Priority Areas

The Community Foundation has two grantmaking cycles. During each cycle they accept applications in all five of their Priority Areas:

  • Thriving Communities
  • Equity and Inclusion
  • Regional Cooperation
  • Economic Opportunity for All
  • Overcoming Persistent Poverty

Funding Information

  • There is no maximum request amount, but in recent years awarded grants have ranged from $5,000 to $125,000 with an average amount of $35,000.
  • CFGB prefers requests that do not exceed 25% of the budget for the proposed project. Potential or secured support for the remaining 75% of the budget should be identified. That total cost and scale of the project should be reasonable, feasible, and sustainable in relation to the applicant’s overall budget and activities.
  • Organizations with documented revenue under $25,000 may only request a Seed Grant of $8,000 or less.
  • Organizations requesting a grant of $75,000 or greater MUST have an annual or semi-annual independent audit.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Applicants must be currently designated a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization by the IRS OR be a 501(c)(3) exempt religious institution OR be a government entity. Private non-operating foundations are not eligible. Applicants may use a fiscal sponsor only if there is a meaningful mission fit and an existing working relationship between the two organizations.
  • Applicants must serve Blount, Jefferson, Shelby, St. Clair or Walker counties in Alabama.
  • Large organizations with many branches or departments (e.g. colleges, universities, YMCA, public libraries) must submit requests from the president’s office or the development office.
  • An applicant with a current open grant from the Community Foundation may apply but MUST be up to-date on all reporting and should have a very compelling or timely reason for requesting a new grant.
