Since 1998, Manatee Community Foundation has awarded more than $23 million in scholarships and grants to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. The generosity of donors who give through MCF makes impactful work possible in the arts, human services, education, animal welfare, environmental, civic engagement, and health related causes.

This year, we have collaborated with Manatee County Government and United Way Manatee for a new “results first” framework which will help us make better decisions based on how organizations have moved the needle for their clients. Nearly $215,000 will be awarded to local nonprofits at Manatee Community Foundation on Monday, April 23, 2018 at a grants reception celebrating the difference these organizations will make.

Eligible 501(c)(3) organizations for MCF’s annual competitive grant application process will have a fully updated profile in The Giving Partner.
