Apply for a Grant

Presently, grants from the Fund for Carbon County (created by the Founder’s board) are made available during a spring grant cycle.  Grants from donor-advised funds can be distributed at any time at the donor’s request.


The next grant application deadline for the Fund for Carbon County is 11:59pm April 30, 2019.

Grant guidelines:

  • 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations are encouraged to apply. If you do not have a 501(c)(3) status, please contact CCCF’s director to see if it might still be possible for you to apply.
  • If applicant is not the Chief Executive Officer themselves, he or she should have authorization from the CEO to apply on the organization’s behalf.
  • Applicants are welcome to request all manner of support, including program, capital, and operational support.
  • All fields of community service are eligible for funding consideration.
  • Applicants are strongly encouraged to list other resources, including in-kind support, in their budgets. CCCF may fund a project 100%, however, our evaluators want to encourage collaboration and like to see other resources committed.
  • There is no specific grant amount range, however, applicants may reference the list of past grants to see what has been awarded.

Application instructions:

  • The application is a single-screen, online form. You cannot save and revisit your application; you must complete and submit your application in one sitting.
  • It is recommended that you preview the information you will need to supply, prepare your responses in a word processor program (Microsoft Word or Google Docs), and revisit the online form once you have all of your information ready.
  • The application requires you to submit two document uploads: a budget and a Board of Directors list. It is recommended that you prepare this information on letterhead and save these documents as pdf files.
