Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation (BTCF) - Fund for Columbia County
Grants of up to $5,000 and grants of up to $10,000 to Columbia County, New York nonprofit organizations, public agencies, and community groups for collaborative and innovative projects that improve the quality of life of local residents. Funding may be used for projects in the areas of the arts, education, environment, preservation, health, and social services. Projects should create or enhance a lasting and positive impact on the residents of the county, with particular emphasis on low-income and/or underserved residents.
The Foundation welcomes applications from single applicants, although they also believe in the power of collaboration and that organizations can achieve more working together than they can alone. Collaborations can save resources and can also make organizations more powerful in their collective focus. Examples of collaborative partnerships include shared resources, joint planning, and coordination of programs and services.
