Funding Focus Areas

We believe local leaders know their community best, and are the greatest innovators of ideas with impact. The four focus areas of the Community Match Fund are general and broad to serve as catalysts for intentional action to address vital issues common across the state. Consider the examples within each category as a place to start, but in no way exhaustive. Curious if your idea fits?! Let's chat.
