CFFK’s Grants Committee will review all applications and select recipients for funding. Historically, awards have ranged from $2,000 to $7,000 and grant awards will not exceed $10,000.
All applicants must be a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization and projects must serve residents of Monroe County. With approximately $60,000 available to be awarded in each round, priority will be given to new programs or projects and those serving new audiences and underserved populations. Grants will be awarded based on innovation, community impact and collaboration. Projects must be completed within 12 months of the grant award. Requests for funding of capital projects are discouraged.
Nonprofit organizations of all types may submit one application in each round provided the program or project relates to that area. All applications must be submitted using the online application form below. Any application presented by US Mail, courier service, email or in person drop off will not be accepted. Applications will not be complete until the Grant Application is finalized and Accompanying Materials (including the Budget Worksheet below) are received on or before the deadline.
The 2017 Grant Program is funded through generous donations made to the Florida Keys Future Fund at CFFK. Donations to the Future Fund to support grants to local nonprofits can be made here or by calling 305-292-1502.
