Four Way Community Foundation Grant Applications Open
Deadlines March 1 and April 1, 2024.
Grants Pass— The Four Way Community Foundation is now accepting applications for the 2024 cycle of the Rose Douglas program, deadline March 1, and the Community Grants program, deadline April 1.
Rose Douglas grants are for Josephine County nonprofits serving residents with intellectual or developmental disabilities. Community Grants fund Josephine County and western Jackson County nonprofit organizations for capital projects up to $10,000.
Four Way Community Foundation grants are funded by investment income from multiple endowments left in the care of Four Way by local residents to benefit the people of our area. Four Way will disburse approximately $300,000 in Community Grants in 2024. Full details are on the website at fourwaycommunityfoundation.org/grants. Organizations should carefully read all guidelines before applying. There is a firm nondiscrimination policy requirement. Not-for-profit organizations new to grants are especially encouraged to apply. Inquiry calls to discuss proposals are strongly welcomed.
“I look back at the first experience I had writing a grant and what an encouraging and straightforward process it was because of the Four Way Community Foundation’s help. Retrofitting the 100-year-old Grave Creek covered bridge with ambient lighting was a big capital project to take on,” said Debra Lawwill, President of Sunny Valley’s Friends of Country Living. “The Four Way Foundation shared our our vision and opened the way to a ‘Bright New Century’ for our community.”
The Four Way Community Foundation has served this area for 49 years, and has given over $8.8 million in grants and scholarships locally, using proceeds from the invested $13.5 million in local donations and endowments entrusted to its care. Four Way has more assets under management designated specifically for Josephine County than any other foundation, local or statewide.
Endowment gifts to benefit local groups or fields of interest may be made to the Four Way Community Foundation so that those funds provide for our community in perpetuity. Contact Four Way at 474-9774 or at [email protected] to leave a local legacy, or to make a donation of any size to our very own local community foundation.
