Since 2014, the Coral Gables Community Foundation has formally awarded grants to deserving local non-profit organizations that address issues within our focus areas and serve those who live, work, learn and play in Coral Gables. The Foundation has a strong commitment toward programs benefiting education, arts & culture, historic preservation and social & health services.
Grants are awarded twice a year – Spring and Fall. Reviewing, considering and awarding grant proposals requires considerable time and attention. The Community Giving Committee reviews the grant applications and makes recommendations to the Board of Directors of the Community Foundation. Each grant application is subject to a review process that may last 30-60 days.
All applicants will be notified in writing or via email regarding the status of their grant. Grants from the Foundation do not typically exceed $5,000. Grant recipients that have received a grant in a given calendar year are encouraged to wait until the following year to apply again.
