Community Foundation for Southwest Washington 2017 Grant Cycle Open

January is the month that we race out of the gate in pursuit of our annual goals. Fundraising is often high on the list for nonprofit professionals. If that’s the case for you and your organization, don’t miss the Community Foundation’s first grant cycle of 2017. The application process opened in December and the deadline to submit proposals is Tuesday, January 31, 2017.

Last year, CFSWW’s two grant cycles distributed more than $800,000 to local nonprofits. If your organization is interested in applying, it’s best to start by reading through their 2017 Grant Guidelines. You can also review their entire list of 2016 grantees to get an idea of the programs they have funded in the past. As you’ll see, they offer three funding categories: Focus Grants, Enrichment Grants and Flexible Grants. 

If you’d like to learn more about any of these grant programs, submit an application or access the guidelines, you can find all the information you need on CFSWW’s grant programs page. You can also contact them anytime at with specific questions.
