Grant Opportunities from the Williamsburg Community Foundation - Spring 2017

Community Endowment Grants of up to $5,000 will be made by the Williamsburg Community Foundation in its Spring 2017 Grant Round. The Foundation is interested in receiving applications from organizations that support a broad range of community enrichment opportunities and respond to changing community needs. We have reframed our grant priorities to better reflect how our grant investments impact the community through five specific areas of interest: Arts & Culture, Children & Young Adults, Environment & Conservation, Health & Community Wellness, and Senior Services.

The deadline to submit your grant proposal online is January 19, 2017 at noon.

Community Endowment Grants will:

• Support a diverse range of philanthropic purposes including the arts, civic affairs, community development, conservation, cultural activities, education, historic preservation, social services and other fields that benefit citizens in its service area, which encompasses Williamsburg, James City County and York County.

• Give special attention to projects that have a broad community benefit, that will provide enrichment or enhancement to the lives of residents and/or that demonstrate the potential benefit of an innovative program to the community at-large.

Grant guidelines and application materials may be found at Generally, an organization will receive only one grant in a year. For more information, contact the foundation office at 757-259-1660 or
