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.

There will be two opportunities to apply for a responsive grant in 2024. The deadlines for applications are:

March 4, 2024

August 26, 2024

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, Yadah V. Ramirez at yramirez@cfhz.org or 616-994-8862 who will speak with you and can provide you with an application.
