The Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln accepts grant applications for several programs and charitable funds throughout the year. The Community Foundation encourages nonprofit organizations in Sangamon, Cass, Christian, Logan, Macoupin, Menard, Montgomery, and Morgan counties to apply for funding from our competitive grantmaking funds when eligible.

Who can apply
Each grant program at the Foundation is unique in what it funds and who is eligible to apply. Please review the grant information for each program carefully to make sure your organization meets the specific criteria. Applications are generally accepted from:
- registered 501(c)(3) charitable organizations
- faith-based organizations (proposals must benefit all, regardless of religion, and be for service provided which is not religious in nature)
- public or private schools (proposals must be for projects that exceed the school’s budget funding)
- units of government or municipalities
Grant applications must be completed using our online system.
Grant applications are made available via the table below when each program opens. Applications typically open four to six weeks before their deadlines.
Grant reports must also be submitted online.
Grant report forms for each program are linked in the table below.
