GCF makes grants from community and field of interest funds on a quarterly basis. Grants support projects in six areas: strong communities, cultural vibrancy, job creation, environmental stewardship, educational success, health & wellness and economic opportunity. See a chart of our grantmaking framework .
Your first step is to review information about applying for these grants and to download a copy of our grant guidelines. GCF does not accept unsolicited grant proposals.
The Foundation takes a proactive approach to grantmaking by providing leadership, knowledge and grants to address large-scale community issues. Community Leadership Initiatives and Cornerstone Investments are most often initiated by GCF or developed with extensive GCF involvement. They generally involve major, long-term grants and are structured as formal funding partnerships among a number of foundation and corporate partners. Learn more about GCF’s Community Leadership.
GCF’s most recent community leadership initiatives focus on addressing racial disparities and improving race relations, comprehensive community development, public education, economic development and strengthening the region’s arts and cultural assets. GCF does not accept unsolicited proposals for Community Leadership Initiative Grants.
