What is grant funding?
Grants from community foundations are non-repayable funds, made up of donations from people in the local area.
These donations are made into funds or grouped into different causes and distributed by the community foundation to those who need it most. Some grant funding is referred to as ‘match funding’ – this is where the government or other fundholder requires their donation to be matched by the cause or by another sponsor such as a local business. Giving to community foundations to increase their ability to distribute grants is a great way to give to charity and to meet a wide range of needs in your local area.
