Our responsive grant program (formerly known as competitive grants) has an open funnel process that allows CFHZ to invest in opportunities across a broad range of issues and organizations.

CFHZ will have two responsive grant rounds in 2023:

March 6, 2023

August 28, 2023

Grant applications are reviewed and evaluated by the Distribution Committee or the Youth Advisory Committee with support from CFHZ staff. Review committees provide recommendations to the Foundation’s Board of Trustees for final grant determinations. Organizations should anticipate approximately eight weeks between the application deadline and receiving a final decision on their proposal.

In order to begin the application process, please contact Director of Community Impact, Yah-Hanna Jenkins Leys at yjenkinsleys@cfhz.org or 616-396-6590, who will speak with you and can provide you with an application.
