Our Grantmaking

The Community Foundation of the New River Valley awards grants in a variety of ways. Our competitive process is through our Responsive Grant Program. The program has specific application requirements, eligibility criteria, and available funding levels.

Responsive Grant Program

The Responsive Grant Program at the CFNRV is an annual grant program intended to respond to ongoing or emergent community needs as recognized by the area nonprofits serving those needs directly. This program focuses on providing operating support so nonprofits can use the funds where they are most needed. Learn more about our Responsive Grant program here. The 2023 application will open at the end of May.
