Community Enhancement


Community Enhancement Grants are awarded annually each Fall, with applications due in early October and grant awards announced by the end of November.  Nonprofits serving Arlington may submit one request for up to $10,000 for either general operating support or for a specific project. 

In 2013, the Arlington Community Foundation awarded $127,500 in Community Enhancement Grants to 42 nonprofit organizations.

Submitting a Successful Grant

Preference will be given to those non-profit organizations showing the ability to meet a clear and pressing community need, who leverage their resources by, for example, cooperating and collaborating with other organizations and using volunteers effectively, and who indicate clear goals and means to evaluate success.
