Why community grants make an impact?

Our community grant partners are involved and investing in our communities and neighborhoods.
Athletic participation is building character for the body, mind and heart.
Watch and let one of our incredible partners share their story of impact:

We support nonprofit organizations providing services in the Portland, Oregon metropolitan area.
We focus on the following counties:

  • Multnomah
  • Washington and
  • Clackamas
An organization that is certified as tax exempt under Section 501(c) (3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code and is not a private foundation as defined in section 509(a) of that Code is eligible for consideration.
  • Program funding for program development and the continuation/expansion of existing programs.
  • Operation support to enable an organization to carry out its core mission by strengthening organizational capacity and program sustainability.
  • Capital funding is limited and for specific projects with capital expenditures, such as equipment and facilities.

Completed applications are accepted at anytime.

Our grant request deadlines are:

  • March 1 for an April decision (this is a new date for 2018) and
  • September 1 for a November decision.

Requests are reviewed on a case by case basis, the Foundation as a general practice does not fund the total cost of a capital, program or capacity building budget. Requests are considered by the amount of the specific capital, program , or capacity building budget, and in the case of core support, the size of the organization’s operating budget.

Grant applications can be submitted to Grants@MultnomahAthleticFoundation.com.
