Good Neighbor Grants

Good Neighbor Grants address youth development, vibrant community or quality of life issues with a simplified application process for requests of $250 up to $10,000 and a timely 4 week response after the application deadline. These grants are intended to support community activities, to stimulate creative ideas among grassroots groups and to support other small projects or programs that fall within our community investment priority areas.

NEW! Sponsorship requests have the same application as the Good Neighbor process. Organizations are encouraged to submit their requests 90 days prior to the event/program in order to allow for application review and potential marketing team follow-up for branding purposes.
