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.
Eligibility for Responsive Grants
Nonprofit organizations that are tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, schools, municipalities and other governmental entities that serve a charitable purpose in the greater Holland/Zeeland area.
