We're looking for your bright ideas to better Winter Park

August 27 2019 • Allie Moise


Our Winter Park Community Grants, a signature initiative of the Winter Park Community Foundation at Central Florida Foundation, seeks to award three one-time capability building and/or programmatic grants to eligible public, private or faith-based entities located in or serving Winter Park, FL.

Three grants will be awarded this year:

(1) grant for $25,000

(1) grant for $15,000

(1) grant for $10,000

We’re most interested in your ideas for unique projects that can increase the capability of your nonprofit or its programs. For capability building projects, a strong preference will be shown towards technology, program materials, location/space modification, staff training, and community collaboration. This time around, less weight will be given to proposals for marketing or strategic plans or staff positions. And, the grant does not need to cover the full cost of the project.
