Grantham Gives Back Community Grants

Application Guidelines

Grantham University is proud of its culture of giving back, which is built upon Grantham’s service to our students, and our local and global communities. This commitment is exemplified by the Grantham Gives Back Fund Grant, dedicated to providing financial support to non-profit organizations1 and funded solely by Grantham employee donations. This year, Grantham will award at least six community grants – up to $3,000 each – to non-profit organizations that help their community and align with Grantham’s mission and values. Do you know of an organization that could benefit from one of our community grants? Are you part of an organization that could advance its mission with a community grant from Grantham University? We invite you to apply for our community grant and join the Grantham Gives Back family.
