Cumberland Community Foundation awards grants to nonprofit organizations in order to improve the quality and spirit of community life.

Some donors restrict or direct their support to certain designated causes (through their Designated Endowments and Donor Advised Funds). Other donors leave it up to Cumberland Community Foundation to decide which projects will produce the best results for our community (through their Community Funds, often named for the donor or loved one). We are happy to serve all donors and help them achieve their charitable goals.

If you are interested in learning more, please consider attending a CCF Grantseeker’s Update Session. 

Grantseeking at CCF: What Do You Need to Know?
Nonprofit staff and volunteers are invited to attend this monthly meeting at CCF for a quick overview of grants and services available through Cumberland Community Foundation.

The next session will be March 23 at 2pm. Registration is required, so please email if you plan to attend.
