The Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region is a collection of more than 340 different charitable funds, and grants are distributed through many different channels. In 2010, the Community Foundation distributed more than $3 million in grants to hundreds of not-for-profit organizations in the Greater Capital Region and beyond.

Connecting Donors to Issues and Organizations They Care About
The majority of Community Foundation grants are made in partnership with individuals, families, or organizations who work with the Foundation to facilitate their charitable giving through donor advised funds. In order to better support donors’ philanthropy and provide the maximum financial support possible to meet community needs, staff augments the funds available through our competitive grant programs by connecting donors to organizations, issues, and approaches aligned with their interests. We regularly refer proposals we receive in conjunction with competitive grant cycles to our donor advisors.
