Through our grants, the Foundation responds to community needs in a variety of major categories including education, social needs and health, arts and culture, recreation, and the environment. Grants are presented to 501(c)(3) charitable organizations that satisfy the requirements of the IRS.
Competitive Grants, Eligibility and Criteria.
Competitive community grants are made annually from a number of funds. These funds provide grants to non-profit organizations and programs in the Staunton, Waynesboro, Augusta, Highland, and Nelson County areas. They provide the greatest flexibility in making grants to address the community’s most pressing needs. We invite you to review our grants information pages and welcome your organization’s grant application.
