The Community Foundation holds, invests, and administers a collection of separate funds established to meet philanthropic goals of donors and the needs of Putnam County. The income earned from our unrestricted funds is awarded in the form of grants to meet community needs and aspirations both now and in the future.
Nonprofits and other charitable entities may apply for Community Grants, request emergency Rapid Response Grants or inquire about funding for special projects.
While these grant programs do not support special events, organizations looking for event support may submit a sponsorship request.
