Apply for a Grant with Gifts Online

As of July 1, 2017, the Community Foundation's grant software moved from Philanthropy Online to Gifts Online.

Gifts Online is a simple, easy-to-use platform that enables nonprofits, scholarship seekers and Foundation staff to work quickly and more efficiently. It is more user-friendly and there is no profile or info to update regularly.

As grant applications open, we will post the links here on this page.



Nonprofit organizations may submit, edit and create grant proposals for review by the Community Foundation through Gifts Online. Stay tuned for more information about when the next grant cycle will open.


Scholarship applicants may submit, edit and create their applications in Gifts Online. The 2018 application will open in November 2017. 

Charitable Catalog

The former charitable catalog available on Philanthropy Online will no longer be available. Nonprofits no longer need to create "profiles" - they will only need to create log-in credentials in order to submit grant proposals. 

Donors & DonorCentral

If you are a current fundholder, you now have online access to your fund through new platform DonorCentral. You can access your fund through DonorCentral HERE.

Due 11/9/17 - Impact 100 Palm Beach County 



Nonprofits seeking assistance from FEMA - find out who may be eligible HERE and what might be covered (page 11, section D.)


The funders in Palm Beach County have joined together to establish a coordinated Hurricane Irma Relief & Recovery Funding application process.  This funding process will provide assistance to nonprofit organizations in Palm Beach County whose facilities, services and clients have been impacted by Hurricane Irma.  As of today, the following funders have made a commitment to review applications and coordinate funding for this effort:

  • Allegany Franciscan Ministries
  • Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County
  • Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties
  • Celia Lipton Farris & Victor W. Farris Foundation
  • Lost Tree Village Charitable Foundation
  • Quantum Foundation
  • United Way of Palm Beach County

Funding priorities for Hurricane Irma Relief and Recovery Funds include:

  1. emergency food, shelter and other basic needs;
  2. facility costs (repairs and relocation) not covered by FEMA or private insurance;
  3. expansion of service capacity related to increased demand for direct services during or immediately following Hurricane Irma;
  4. expenses that would allow continuation of services that otherwise would be interrupted.

Because we may receive a high volume of requests for these funds, applicants are advised that we do not expect to be able to cover all funding requests; and we may not be able to fund the full amount of each request.  However, we are committed to make the best use of available resources to address the highest priority needs.  To address these concerns, we have set the following limitations on applications: 

  • Applicants must be nonprofit organizations that provide services to Palm Beach and/or Martin County residents;
  • Applicants must apply for assistance from FEMA, if applicable, and to their private insurance companies to cover the cost of repairs or replacements caused by Hurricane Irma;
  • Nonprofit agencies that have business interruption insurance must submit claims for lost revenues to their insurance companies.
