Organizations in the three counties can apply for grants that are awarded in six areas:

  • Arts and Culture
  • Economic Development
  • Education
  • Environmental
  • Human Services
  • Medical and Hospice

The Community Impact Fund is an endowed fund, so every donation not only contributes once, but the contribution grows and continues to give forever![/toggle]
