Description


Core Funding Opportunity: 
An organization can choose to utilize Core Funding during either the Calendar Year (January 1 – December 31) or the Academic Year (July 1 – June 30). The process for applicants to receive Core Funding over two Calendar Years; January 1, 2025 through December 31, 2026; is below.

2025-2026 Guidelines

  • Organizations may apply for up to two separate projects. Organizations currently receiving funding for one project may only apply for one additional project.
  • Instead of a project limit cap, CSF will now consider investing up to $750,000 annually in a single organization with Core Funding (no more than 1.5 million over 2-years). This can be done through a single request, or no more than two different requests in either funding cycle (calendar year or academic year). Individual projects are not bound by an award limit.
  • Contracts will be awarded for two-year projects, dates January 1, 2025 through December 31, 2026.
  • Continued during this cycle:
    • There is no longer a requirement of a “25% cash-match.”
    • Applicants will self-select one outcome from within the Fund’s Community Impact Framework.
    • In lieu of full applications, applicants will participate in an in-person presentation with CSF staff to discuss their proposed project. Selected applicants will receive additional instructions regarding these presentations.
