Application Process

The Four Way Community Foundation conducts one grant application process per year. The grant cycle opens February 1 and closes April 1. The application cover page and guidelines are available on this website, and the process is open to all non-profits in Josephine and western Jackson counties.

No grant requests will be accepted prior to February 1 or after April 1 of a given year. All grant requests must have the grant application cover page and must comply with the grant request guidelines.

Submitted grant applications are distributed among the 12-member Four Way Community Foundation Board of Directors. To learn more about each project, board members usually visit the non-profits submitting a grant. Board members then present the grant request to the entire board for further review.

When all grant requests have been presented, the entire board makes a final determination of grant awards. Applicants are notified by mid-to late May regarding their grant application and checks are distributed.
