PCC Community Grant Program

 

We aren’t just part of the community — we’re owned by it. Our Community Grant Program supports local nonprofit organizations that are making positive impacts in our region.

Four times a year, PCC awards grants of up to $4k to two organizations that exemplify the spirit of our local community. One environmental grant and one social action grant are awarded each quarter, and we have a particular fondness for projects and programs that involve the nexus of food, equity and sustainability. Grant recipients will receive recognition in Sound Consumer, on our social media platforms and on our website.

Read through our program guidelines here, and submit your application here. We look forward to hearing about your organization!
