Improving the Quality of Life
Each year, Three Rivers Community Foundation (“TRCF”) accepts grant applications from local 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, units of government or public school districts serving the communities within the ISD 728 geographical service area.
Grant applications must show specifically how an organization will improve the quality of life and strengthen these communities in the one or more of the following areas:
Social, Cultural and Leisure:
To enhance educational opportunities, enrich the artistic and cultural climate, increase and diversify recreational opportunities.
Public Issues and Information:
Citizen led initiatives that will enable thoughtful, non-partisan analysis of important community issues, particularly those that clarify and build consensus on resolving pressing community issues.
Education and Lifelong Learning:
To improve the quality, scope and accessibility of educational programming to all residents in the service area.
To improve the quality, accessibility and efficiency of health care service; to impact positively the housing, safety, employment and other needs of vulnerable youth, elderly and low income people; or to lessen human suffering by building the ability of people to improve their lives.
