How to Apply for A Grant

All non-profit organizations that focus on the human service needs of the residents of Concord and Carlisle are encouraged to apply for a Community Chest grant.

Applications are closed. The applications for the 2019-2020 cycle will be available in December 2019.

Once a completed application has been received, a meeting with a Community Chest Grant Allocations Team will be scheduled during February or March. This face-to-face allows us to get to learn about your organization and application request in greater depth. Prior to that meeting, we may request additional information or ask that you be prepared to answer specific questions.

The Community Chest Board of Directors makes final funding decisions in May, presents grants at the Day of Giving in June, and begins funding in July.
