Community Foundation of Broward Launches New Support for Grassroots Nonprofits

January 31, 2022
The Community Foundation of Broward's new Small Grants provide up to $25,000 in immediate support to help small, grassroots nonprofits tackle big challenges in Broward's diverse neighborhoods.

The Community Foundation of Broward is pleased to announce new support to help grassroots nonprofits tackle Broward’s most pressing challenges.

Our new Small Grants provide a shot in the arm for small, often minority-led nonprofits that play a big role in making Broward a better place to live.

The Community Foundation's new Small Grants create a flexible source of support for small nonprofits, which was a suggestion provided during our neighborhood listening tour.

We know that small nonprofits face big hurdles to sustain and expand their critical services – a challenge made more daunting by the economic repercussions of the pandemic.

The Community Foundation’s new Small Grants make it easier for these trusted, front-line organizations to get the resources they need to deliver critical services that help residents and enrich our community.

Community Foundation’s New Small Grants

  • Grants for nonprofits range from $2,500 to $25,000
  • Applications accepted between Feb. 1, 2022 and May 2, 2022
  • Priority given to grassroots, minority-led nonprofits that help residents overcome barriers to success

Responding to neighborhood needs

Our new Small Grants are a direct result of feedback gained during the Community Foundation’s “Care to Share” neighborhood listening tour – small gatherings all across Broward to hear directly from those affected by our community’s big challenges.  These neighborhood meetings create new community connections and foster conversations that lead to solutions, such as our new Small Grants.
