This year the College Park Community Foundation (CPCF) has increased our maximum award to $1500, and while the CPCF prefers to fund specific projects instead of general operating expenses, they are no longer requiring that grant funds be applied to new or expending projects.

In lieu of a grant application workshop the CPCF will be hosting an “office hours” session on Thursday, July 6 from 4-7pm. You can drop in any time during those hours to chat with a board member about your project, or to have questions answered about the application process. If you can’t make the office hours, the CPCF will be happy to arrange another time to meet with you or speak via phone.

Applications are due by 11:59pm on Monday, July 31, 2017. Grant awardees will be notified by September 1, 2017. Please see the eligibility guidelines to find out if you can apply, and then fill out this brief questionnaire to be sent an application. Please feel free to share this information with any groups you think might be eligible for funding – our community grows through our connections!

If you have any questions, please email Nick Brennan at
