How to Apply

To Apply for a Grant

Start by reviewing our Granting Priorities & Guidelines.

In lieu of a full grant application, the Foundation requires a Letter of Intent, which must include:

  • Organization name
  • Brief statement of your mission
  • A one paragraph summary of the project
  • Timeline of the project
  • Total cost of the project
  • Total amount requested from the Foundation

Your Letter of Intent must be limited to one page and provide enough information for the Foundation to make a funding decision.

Letters of Intent will be accepted on a rolling basis.

Your organization may be asked to submit a full grant proposal at a later date.

Your letter may be submitted by mail to Community Foundation, 220 S. Jefferson St., Kittanning, PA, 16201, or by email to Jodi Beers, Executive Director, at jodi@servingtheheart.org

Completion of Project

Upon completion of the project, the grantee will provide the Foundation with an appropriate report concerning the ultimate expenditure of the grant award.

Please return the report to:
