The Power of Small Grants

Every day, individuals and small organizations throughout Northeast Florida achieve tremendous change despite scarce resources. We’re proud to bolster these efforts by providing much-needed funding and partnership to those working closest on the ground to a broad range of issues. Together, we’re realizing life-changing results in Baker, Clay, Duval, Putnam, Nassau and St. Johns counties.
Sweet Soul Catering flourished with help from The Empowered Kitchen, a Small Organization Grants recipient that helps women to find independence through careers in the food industry.

Grassroots Grantmaking, Simplified

Small Organization Grants of $2,000-$5,000 provide critical funding to nonprofits with operating budgets of $200,000 or less. Working one-on-one with grant applicants and grantees, we lift the burden of lengthy grantmaking and reporting, while helping to develop strategic solutions and support those working within Northeast Florida communities.

Uplifting Girls with Journaling

Vessels of the Living Water leveraged Community Foundation funds to inspire and encourage at-risk girls through journaling and mentoring. Some of the journaling has been turned into short self-published books.

Empowering Women Entrepreneurs

The Empowered Kitchen provides mentoring and training to local women to help them transform culinary skills into thriving businesses. With help from the Community Foundation, they’re bringing powerful change and new opportunities to underserved areas.

Supporting At-Risk Students

Heart for Children served over 75 students and families with food, personal hygiene products and school supplies. Based in the Eastside, the nonprofit provides safe and nurturing environments for at-risk youth.

If we bring these businesses into our community, we’re changing lives beyond the women we’re helping.
