Community Foundation Welcomes Grant Requests

The Charlevoix County Community Foundation and the Petoskey-Harbor Springs Area Community Foundation invite area nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, and municipalities to submit grant requests to put local charitable dollars to work in our area.

Grant applications to support arts and culture, education, the environment, community and economic development, health and human services, recreation and youth are available by calling your respective community foundation office.  All applicants must call to discuss their proposals in advance.   Eligible nonprofit organizations must serve residents of Charlevoix County or Emmet County and work to enrich or improve life for local residents.  The deadline for submission is Monday, October 3.  Applications will be reviewed by community members and the youth advisory committee members and recommendations will be reviewed by the respective Boards of Trustees.

The community foundations accept contributions from donors and then use a portion of the income earned from the investment of these gifts to help foster positive change in our area.  In this way, our donors’ contributions meet our community needs, now and in the future – For good. For ever.® 

To apply for a grant or for more information, contact one of our community and donor engagement officers, Sarah Ford or Kassia Perpich at 231-348-5820 or email us at
