THRIVE Grant Opportunities from the Fund for York County

The Fund for York County focuses resources on our community’s most pressing issues. Our new focus seeks to provide funding opportunities for programs and collaboratives that transform lives and our community by helping people thrive by building economic mobility for low-income individuals.

Grants are awarded to organizations or collaboratives that support our new strategic direction in creating new programs, expansion of existing programs, and planning and research.

2023 Grant Programs

THRIVE Grants for up to $6,000 (formerly Community Grants)

Fund for York County is granting up to $70K through its community grant program in 2023.  Two community grant cycles are being offered (see timeline below).

Community grant applications are read and scored by community volunteers.  The applications are shorter than other YCCF applications. The maximum amount that can be requested is $6,000.

We will only accept applications that focus on helping people thrive by building economic mobility for low-income individuals.
