FY2020 is the final year in which strategic grants will support these projects.

All grant applications are made through the Community Foundation’s online application process, and details, including capacity-building definitions, can be found at www.FrederickCountyGives.org/grants.

To be eligible to apply, an organization must certify it is one of the following and in good-standing: a 501(c)(3) nonprofit; a government agency applying for an extraordinary project that is not funded by tax revenue; a religious organization requesting funding for non-sectarian activities; or a civic group that is not a 501(c)(3) requesting funding for a community cause.
