For Grant Seekers
The Greater Everett Community Foundation works in partnership with local donors to strengthen communities throughout Snohomish County by building permanent charitable funds, by connecting donors to charitable causes they care about, by making effective grants and by providing leadership to address community issues.
Over the last year we have distributed over $500,000 in grants to a variety of local non-profit organizations through the 100 different funds we manage. The vast majority of the grants stayed here in our community.
You’ll notice when you review the Available Grants that we’re offering eight competitive grant opportunities. We’ve simplified the grant application form - some funds have applications unique to their grants. Periodically we make minor changes to our application form, so we suggest checking for the new form rather than using a download from a past grant cycle. Grant deadlines have changed to mean "received in our office" rather than post-marked. We have a mail slot on our front door for those of you submitting at the last moment!
Our evaluation reporting requirement continues for all our grantees and we are tracking outcomes to measure the impact of our grantmaking in the community.
We plan to schedule more annual site visits so we can see your programs in action, and we are always looking for photos that “tell the story” of the work that you do with grants received through GECF. These photos may be used in our marketing materials so you will need to have a signed release authorization from people in photos before sending them to us. We prefer digital photo files sent electronically.
We want to make sure we have the most up to date e-mail and contact information for your agency. If you have had staff or address changes, please forward that information to us at [ email ].
