The Community Foundation for Northeast Michigan (CFNEM) is accepting grant applications for the summer 2021 grant cycles of its Community Impact Grant, and the Northeast Michigan Women’s Giving Circle (WGC) Grant. All nonprofit agencies with a 501(c)(3) IRS designation, schools, churches (for non-religious purposes) and government agencies serving the counties of Alcona, Alpena, Montmorency and Presque Isle are invited to apply.
Community Impact Grants are for a broad range of projects and programs. The maximum grant request amount is $5,000. The deadline to apply is July 15. Applications for this opportunity will use the Foundation’s new online grant application system. Community Foundation staff is available for questions and assistance. Please note: previous, older versions of CFNEM Community Impact applications will no longer be accepted.
Women’s Giving Circle Grants are for projects and programs that address issues important to women in northeast Michigan. The maximum grant request amount is $3,000. The deadline to apply for WGC grants is July 1. The previous method of applying for WGC Grants will be used for 2021.
Applications and guidelines for both grant opportunities are available at cfnem.org.
