Grants

  

The Community Foundation makes grants to support a wide variety of projects and charities each year. We take a broad view of community and are proud to be a “360 degree grant provider”, granting in all sectors of need to enhance the quality of life in our communities.

We offer four granting programs:

Community Grants Program

Regina Rosen Food First Fund

A monthly grant that is given to food providing and food security organizations in the community.

The Stark Family Fund

A yearly granting program that supports a broad spectrum of projects in Prince Edward County.

Nan Yeomans Grant for Artistic Development

An annual grant that helps promising young artists and/or artisans in the visual arts or to further their professional artistic growth.
