2024 GRANT OPTIONS
In 2024, the Lee County Charitable Fund is offering two grant opportunities in one application. The 2024 Lee County Charitable Fund Grant Opportunities are the up to $25,000 IMPACT Grant and the up to $7,500 Grant for Lee County Programs/Capital Needs. In the application, the nonprofit organization applicant must choose ONE grant opportunity only. The nonprofit organization applicant CAN NOT submit multiple applications for each grant opportunity.
Funding for both grant opportunities is at the discretion of the Lee County Charitable Fund Board. If the organization is not awarded the IMPACT Grant, the application will be considered for an up to $7,500.00 Grant. Applying for either grant opportunity does not guarantee full funding.
IMPACT GRANT OPPORTUNITY OPTION
The Lee County Charitable Fund Board could distribute up to $25,000.00 in a Lee County IMPACT Grant to a Lee County nonprofit organization that is focused on providing an immediate impact in Lee County. Lee County nonprofit organizations can apply on an annual basis, but if an organization receives an IMPACT Grant, that organization will not be able to apply for an IMPACT Grant the following year but CAN apply for a grant of up to $7,500.00 the following year.
