Grant Application

The Greater Pike Community Foundation (GPCF) was created to enable generous individuals, families and local businesses to maximize their charitable support through organized, targeted community philanthropy. The Foundation provides a permanent and personal way to give back to the region we love and have worked so hard to nurture and maintain.

Grant Application Instructions

Funding Criteria
Geographic preference will be given to non-profit organizations within the greater Pike community, or those that provide programs and services to the residents of the area. Exceptions to this limitation are provided to donors who establish Donor Advised or Designated Funds and who wish to make grants outside this geographic area.

Funding Priorities
The Foundation will make grants that enhance the quality of life for residents living in the greater Pike community.  Specific grant opportunities will reflect the goals of each individual fund. All grants must be issued to the final recipient nonprofit organization that will actually administer the program or perform the service.

Organizations requesting support must have a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable status under the Internal Revenue Code. Consideration will be given to organizations that demonstrate active board leadership, comprehensive resource development plans which include income generating activities, resource sharing, special support from individuals and an efficient and effective administration of funds and programs.
