Larger Grants

Grants up to $20,000 may be considered throughout the year if they demonstrate scale and scope in Fund for York County’s focus areas. We also can consider larger grants that create systemic change, including:

  • Larger multiyear grants that build collaborative groups’ capacity to work in a collective impact framework
  • Programs identified by a collaborative group as having the highest priority
