Seize the Moment

Seize the Moment grants are small, quick grants that respond to immediate needs in our community. A limited amount of the Foundation’s unrestricted grant  funds have been set aside to support these grant opportunities that occur  outside our regular grant cycle. Seize the Moment grants typically range from  $50 to $250, but never exceed $500.

Funds are limited and when they are expended for the year, grants will cease until the following fiscal year. Applicants will receive notification  regarding their request within 10 working days.
