PCC Community Grant PROGAM

 

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 will be awarded each quarter. We have a particular fondness for projects and programs that involve the nexus of food, equity, and sustainability. Grant recipients will receive recognition — loudly and proudly — via our print publications, social media platforms and on our website.

View complete guidelines for the grant application process. We look forward to receiving your application!
