Our Grant Making Philosophy

The Community Foundation believes in improving the lives of our local citizens; therefore, we only award grants to projects and organizations that will make an impact within our Livingston County community. Our belief and standard for grant recipients is that their project or program must demonstrate a high level of sustainability and a passion for improving an aspect of Livingston County. The Community Foundation will make grants to 501(c)(3) organizations, government entities, school districts, and universities that provide programs that serve Livingston County. Organizations must have an independent certified financial audit. We do not make grants to individuals, sectarian religious programs, or to cover deficits or other previously incurred obligations.


A Grant in Action
