Four Way Community Foundation invites grant proposal calls in special opportunity with The Ford Family Foundation
$50,000 to be distributed locally to meet needs exacerbated by the pandemic
Grants Pass— The Four Way Community Foundation welcomes nonprofit organizations in Josephine and western Jackson Counties to call to discuss proposals for a special funding opportunity for small grants of $2,000 to $6,000 to address needs created or worsened by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Proposals are not limited to, but may include, efforts to address such challenges as senior isolation, student learning gaps, hunger and homelessness, volunteer retention and recruitment, sanitary needs, and other situations made more dire by the pandemic.
Interested parties should call Four Way Community Foundation Executive Director Kate Dwyer, or email to schedule a call, to discuss proposals by December 10, 2021. Groups will then be invited to apply through a streamlined grant process opening December 10, 2021 and closing January 7, 2021.
These grants will be separate from all other grant opportunities offered by the Four Way Community Foundation. To be eligible, groups must be registered nonprofits located in and serving the residents of Josephine and western Jackson counties, and must have in place and abide by a nondiscrimination policy.
“We are grateful to our friends at The Ford Family Foundation for passing through these dollars and for welcoming us to use our deep local knowledge to determine how these funds can be spent most effectively,” stated Four Way Community Foundation Secretary Dawn Welch.
