Once logged into the online fund portal, based on access level, fund representatives may request a grant be distributed from the fund via the Grant Request tab. A list of grant requests to be paid, along with their current status is available on the right side of the page. (Grants still in the Request status can be canceled from this screen if needed).

  • Previous grantees and funds that you have given to can be selected from the drop-down lists.
  • You can search for other Grantees by using the search box. Enter keywords and then click the Search button. The system can search the Community Foundation’s database and GuideStar for organizations containing the keywords you used. (GuideStar is an information service specializing in reporting on U.S. nonprofit organizations.)
  • If not found in the Foundation’s database or in GuideStar, you can create a new nonprofit grantee manually by entering the name, address, zip code, and phone number. These are required to move the request to the Community Foundation for due diligence and approval.
  • Once the grant information has been added, click the Add to Grant Requests button. It will now sit in your Unsubmitted Grant Requests cart. When ready to review and submit all requests in your cart, click the Review and Submit Grant Requests button. If correct, you may submit the requests.
