The Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore (CFES) is encouraging local nonprofits to submit Letters of Inquiry for programs or projects that may qualify for grants from the Foundation’s Small Grants Program.
The Community Foundation’s Small Grants Program provides support to address a wide range of needs including pilot projects, emergencies, organizational improvement and capacity building/technical assistance. Grants range on average from $200 – $2,000 with larger requests invited after consultation with staff.
A letter of inquiry in the CFES’ requested format is required for all requests. Unsolicited applications to the Small Grants Program will not be considered. Following an initial review by the CFES staff, requests to the Small Grants Program will be referred to the appropriate CFES Fund which may have additional application requirements.
There is no deadline for submission. Letters of inquiry are reviewed on an ongoing basis.
