Hi there,

I'm not sure there's been a discussion like this on this forum... Increasingly, we at Community First Foundation are finding opportunities to engage and better our community which lie outside of traditional 501(c)(3) grantmaking. What is your community foundation's process for making charitable grants to 501(c)(4)s, 501(c)(6)s, for-profits, others? Any sample agreements you'd like to share? Further reading that you'd recommend?

Thanks so much in advance.

    In our competitive grant process, we allow non c3s to apply and receive funding. Because all grantees are required to complete a final report, which meets expenditure responsibility requirements, it's easy to open up the process to non c3s.
