So, I recently discovered that the Digital Community Foundation (DCF) offers grant opportunities to advance your mission online and increase your technology and marketing efforts. Please read below for more information. Learn. Grow. Give Back!
The Digital Community Foundation (DCF) arms people with technology and marketing expertise. DCF provides grant opportunities for nonprofits to expand their mission online. DCF has also created Nonprofit Hub so you can find the most relevant information to your organization, in one handy place. It’s their way to help you extend your presence in the community you serve.
The Digital Community Foundation does not have any submission deadlines. Grant applications are accepted throughout the year and are reviewed on an ongoing basis.
To be eligible for support, your organization or institution, as well as the purpose of the proposed project, must qualify under regulations of the United States Internal Revenue Service. As a result, we are not able to provide funding directly to individuals.
