Nonprofits that provide services in Benton and Franklin counties can apply for a grant from Three Rivers Community Foundation (3RCF) to support their programs and services. This annual grant program has given over $5.2 million back to our communities since 2004.
As a community foundation, 3RCF is charged with holding and investing funds for various donors and organizations and distributing the proceeds of those investments for charitable purposes. While some of the distributions are directed by donors, 3RCF maintains an unrestricted fund to support an annual application-based grant program.
“This application-based process gives nonprofits the opportunity to apply for funds to expand an underfunded program or start-up a new program to address community needs,” says Executive Director Abbey Cameron. “These organizations are on the ground, have the expertise, and know the needs. We are fortunate to be able to help them get the job done.”
The application process is open now with a deadline of September 25th. All funding decisions will be made by the 3RCF Board of Directors. Funds will be distributed in November. To access the application and to review grant guidelines, visit http://3rcf.org/non-profits/how-to-apply-for-a-grant/.
In 2019 3RCF distributed almost $83,000 in grants to 28 nonprofits. For a list of nonprofits who received grants in 2019, visit http://3rcf.org/non-profits/recent-grant-recipients-2010/.
