Thank you for your interest in applying for a grant from First Federal Community Foundation.

Please note:

Before beginning your application, review the Grant Guidelines & FAQs (http://bit.ly/ffcf-faq), the organizations that we have previously funded (http://bit.ly/38CKu6s), and, given the extraordinary needs caused and exacerbated by COVID-19, which may continue to impact the Foundation's grantmaking in 2021, review the projects we funded in 2020 (http://bit.ly/3rhOKAW).

Complete the application in one session, as the online form cannot be saved for completion at a later date. Once you submit it, changes will not be accepted. To assist you in preparing your submission, you can view the application in its entirety here: http://bit.ly/ffcf-sample-grant

Save a copy of your application. You may do so by printing it from your computer's internet browser or by clicking the button that reads "Send me a copy of my responses," located just above the Submit link at the end of this application.

Your application will be considered complete when this form and the required documents are received by 11:59 p.m. on March 1, 2021.
