The LCCF’s 2017 Community Grant cycle is now closed. Please check back in Fall 2017 to learn about our next grant cycle.
Grant making at the LCCF is a competitive and thoughtful process. We undertake a careful assessment of community needs, research existing programs, and identify gaps in services in order to make grants that will provide the most effective support for the Lake County community. The LCCF focuses on funding projects that fit within the following areas:
- Arts and Culture
- Community and Economic Development
- Education and Training
- Environmental Initiatives
- Health and Wellness
The LCCF considers grant requests from Lake County nonprofit organizations, or organizations partnered with Lake County nonprofits, serving the Lake County, Colorado community.
We award grants to the following:
- Local nonprofit organizations and partnerships that meet our mission statement objectives and other selection criteria.
- Programs that increase the capabilities and capacity of other local nonprofit organizations.
- Infrastructure projects focused on developing a sustainable economy or programs aimed at improving the quality of life for people in the community.
At this time, we do not offer grants to individuals, multi-year funding, or renewal grants for previously funded projects.
How we decide
Submitted proposals will be reviewed by the Executive Director to ensure they are complete. Applicants will be contacted about incomplete proposals or supporting documents. Complete proposals will be reviewed and scored by the Board of Directors based on our established criteria. Applicants will be notified of their funding status no later than one week following the Board of Directors’ review meeting.
