Grants Overview


In general, grants are made to projects that will benefit Branch County and/or Colon, Michigan. In making grants, the Community Foundation attempts to understand both the specific objectives of each grant request and the long-term benefits that the community will receive from the initiative. All eligible grant applications are carefully considered by review committees whose membership includes a broad representation of the community. ​Successful applications will be for projects which:

  • promote the development or strengthening of community assets,

  • will have a positive long-term impact on program participants and/or the community,

  • lead to the prevention of recurring needs,

  • promote cooperation among area organizations with related or supportive missions, and

  • will be financially sustainable without continuing grant funding.
