Grant Opportunities for Nonprofits
Improving lives and enhancing our community.
Grants offered through the Community Foundation of Sarasota County are fulfilling the philanthropic legacies of our donors who have entrusted our team and board of directors with their charitable dollars. Based on the passions and interests of those individuals and families, grant funding is provided to make the greatest impact possible to improve lives and enhance our community.
To address issues and opportunities that unite people and families across generations to improve our community, grant support is provided in these ways:
Community Impact Grants
Rolling grant cycle for requests up to $10,000 that assist with emerging needs or unexpected opportunities for nonprofit organizations serving various missions in Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte and DeSoto counties.
2Gen & Education Grants
Thanks to donors who committed endowed support of various organizations and causes in the community, grant requests are considered individually throughout the year from organizations that
help families realize their full potential.
With innovative and collaborative programs, our aim is to partner with expert nonprofit organizations that support education for all ages and workforce development to encourage economic mobility.
Annual competitive grants from large Field of Interest funds that invest in specific causes throughout the community. For 2019-2020, the focus is animal welfare and health.
