Community Grants

Each year, we award a diverse variety of grants to fabulous organizations throughout our community.

Fremont Area Community Foundation has two general grant rounds each year. Applications for community grants are due March 1 and September 1.*

Eligible agencies must be located in, or directly serve, the people of Newaygo County. (Those seeking grant funding from one of our three geographic affiliate foundations in Lake, Mecosta, or Osceola counties, can find out more here.)

Nonprofit organizations and public agencies can apply for funding from the Community Foundation using our general grantmaking guidelines.

Community grants should address one of our focus areas:

Visit our community investment section to determine how your program aligns with our goals. All grant requests in this area must adhere to the student trip policy (PDF) and the technology policy (PDF).

We also utilize the Newaygo County Area Dashboard to track major indicators in our community and recommend using these indicators when completing your evaluation.

We encourage you to read our grantmaking priorities and talk with Amy Moore before submitting an application.
