Grants Program Application Form

Generally, we support activities for which there is no standard source of funding or financial interest. We help bridge the gap for projects that need an extra push to get off the ground, or additional support to continue a program's success.


We believe strongly in collaboration, and urge grant applicants to leverage local resources and expand their project's reach in the community.


We fund four program areas:


// Youth Education & Recreation
// Park Development & Maintenance
// Public Safety
// Community Pride Initiatives
