Capital City Fund grants: now available!

The Capital City Fund was created to help nonprofit organizations better serve the people of Albany with effective, innovative programs and services. The Fund is administered in 2016 by the Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region.

The application will be reviewed by a committee, and grants will be based on a review of the submitted information and a consideration of each program’s overall benefit to the City of Albany and its residents.

Organizations may apply for up to $5,000 in funding. Organizations may apply for funding in any one of the following three categories:

  • Community/Cultural: programs and services that involve a direct benefit to residents, such as the enhancement of a park or the sponsoring of a parade or community event.
  • Arts: programs that involve any creative expression, such as music, dance exhibits, or public art projects.
  • Educational: learning opportunities for youth and/or adults (in this category, extra weight will be given to programs that enhance the mission of the Albany Promise [www.albanypromise.org]).
