The Sussex Area Community Foundation is inviting applications for its Community Grant program to support projects that benefit the Sussex area and residents.
The Foundation’s goal in grant making is to strike a balance in strengthening the community’s assets and meeting the community’s needs for the good of all people, in Sussex and surrounding area.
The Foundation reflects the special responsibility of a community foundation to support a broad set of activities that, together, strengthen the fabric of the community.
Projects approved for funding will encompass one or more of the following categories:
- Generally, the maximum grant available will be $5,000.00. However, due to the number of grant requests, most grants awarded are less than this.
The Sussex Area Community Foundation Inc. supports a broad range of projects that offer a service to the community or approach community challenge or concerns in an innovative fashion.
- Only registered charities (qualified donees) are eligible for grants from Sussex Area Community Foundation Inc. Non-profit organizations that do not have a charitable registration number, but would like to apply for a grant, please read the document entitled “How a Non-Profit Organization Can Apply for a Grant” and complete the “Confirmation of Written Agreement Between a Registered Charity and a Non-Profit Organization” form.

- Organizations without a CRA registered charity number applying for a grant are encouraged to contact the SACF office 6 weeks ahead of deadline to ensure they have proper documentation.
