Foundation / Corporation
Community Foundation of Elmira-Corning and the Finger Lakes
Grants to Keuka Lake Area, New York nonprofit organizations, municipalities, and school districts to benefit local residents and protect the region’s natural resources. Funding may be requested for program support, direct services, capital support, capacity building, and organizational development. Program areas include arts and culture, human services, youth and education, environment, health, and civic affairs.
- Successful projects will address community needs while demonstrating sustainable impact and measurable outcomes.
- The Foundation strives to create healthier conditions for people in the community by collectively improving and/or developing them together.
- Funded programs will provide clearly stated goals for the incorporation of diverse cultures, philosophies, and experiences. Diversity is present not only in program delivery but also in the mission, boards, and operations of the organization.
- The voices of the underserved and economically diverse are important, and programs designed to foster access for community connections are preferred.
The Keuka Area Fund funds a wide variety of programs and projects across all program areas. Most grants, however, fall into three categories:
- Program or Direct Service Grants – for costs associated with implementation of the program
- Capital Grants – for costs related to building construction, building renovation or capital equipment
- Organizational Development and Capacity Building Grants - for costs related to activities such as strategic planning, board development, program planning, performance management and evaluation, succession planning or marketing, and communications. Other organizational capacity areas under this category include business planning, fund development, facility planning, and management systems (financial, HR, technology).
Awards will be determined based on the value of the proposal to the residents and communities surrounding Keuka Lake, availability of funding, and quality and vision presented in the application.
