We are currently accepting grant applications for three separate programs.
Guidelines for the three grant programs are summarized below. Click on the header to download the application and instructions.
Grants from the Berkeley County Industrial Park Development Fund support economic development, job creation, workforce development, business recruitment and creation, and employability training initiatives. Schools, technical institutes, colleges, universities, nonprofit organizations and government agencies focusing on programs related to those listed above may apply. Grants generally range from $2,000 to $15,000. Deadline to apply is July 31.
The Two Rivers Giving Circle brings together committed, concerned and charitably-minded citizens to focus on local conservation and preservation grant making in Jefferson, Berkeley and Morgan counties. By pooling their resources, members of the Giving Circle are able to have a much greater impact on the causes that matter to them. Nonprofit organizations and local schools submit grant applications to the Community Foundation throughout the summer. Deadline to apply is September 15.
This new category of competitive grants is being introduced by the Community Foundation to help fund special programs and projects that don’t qualify for EWVCF Youth or Education grants. Applications for EWVCF Unrestricted Grants will be accepted year-around from nonprofit organizations serving Jefferson, Berkeley, and Morgan counties. Grants will normally range from $1,000 to $3,000; however, smaller and larger grant applications may be considered. The amount available for distribution this year is limited, with funding coming from our Partners in Philanthropy Program and our Donor Advised Funds. Grants are normally structured as reimbursable, however, there may be some flexibility depending upon the nonprofit organization and the actual grant funded program or project.
