The Community Support grant cycle is paid from the earnings of our Unrestricted funds. Many donors want to see their contributions go toward a variety of charitable causes which can vary from year to year. These donors have made the decision to allow the Board of Directors of the Greene County Foundation the freedom to determine where/how these earnings are to be spent. The Foundation has a grant committee that reviews all grant requests and makes the awards. Organizations are notified of the opening of the cycle through newspaper press releases, emails, and word of mouth. The Foundation currently holds 18 unrestricted funds. General contributions should be made to the Greene County Foundation Community Support Fund, unless specified to one of the other funds should the donor wish to do so. New unrestricted funds can be started at any time.
