The Columbia Basin Foundation was built on the kindness of those who make this community such a great place to live. The stories behind every fund that we manage directly and every grant recipient we are so honored to support make that abundantly clear. And that is why we have created a regular storyteller series here on the CBF Blog. We hope to share the kindness and compassion of those who have created these funds and organizations to help our communities thrive. This is the story behind the John and Jeanette Steinmacher Scholarship.
Columbia Basin Foundation is thrilled to help manage some really incredible grants available for our community and love to see the very deserving organizations receive this critical help each year. While the foundation gives away hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants each year, there are five that nonprofit organizations can apply for (the rest are designated by the donor). The deadline for grant season is right around the corner, so if you are planning on applying for a grant make sure to get your applications in by March 31st. All applications must be received in the CBF office by 5:00pm on that date (NOT POSTMARKED BY THAT DATE!) or they will not be considered. If you think your organization or group might benefit from one of these grants, head right this way for the guidelines and application.
