2022 Responsive Grants

The CFNRV 2022 Responsive Grant Program will provide up to $4,000 in operating support to eligible organizations. Funding operating support gives organizations the flexibility to put grant dollars where they are needed most. Read about this year’s grant winners.

Grant Catalog

For the third consecutive year, the Community Foundation offered its online Grant Catalog for the public to assist with the foundation’s Responsive Grants process. Each year, the foundation has enough money available to fund approximately half of the requests received, so the Grant Catalog serves as a way for community members to engage in the process by making donations that help provide larger grants to more organizations. The Grant Catalog closed this year on October 31.


  • Who is Eligible?:
    • Organizations serving one of more of the following communities: the counties of Floyd, Giles, Montgomery, Pulaski, and Wythe, and the City of Radford.
    • Organizations classified as a 501c(3) tax-exempt organization by the IRS or a unit of government such as a library or school.
    • We do not support civic or membership organizations that redistribute money to nonprofit organizations.
    • Religious institutions may apply for support for community outreach efforts only. We do not support programs that proselytize or that require clients to engage in religious instruction or activities.
  • Amount Available: Up to $4,000
  • Funds Can be Used For: Funds can be used at the grantee organization’s discretion.
  • Additional Information: We will once again use the online grant catalog to assist CFNRV donors and the general public in contributing to grant awards.
