CommunityGrants is a collaborative effort of several funders in Washtenaw County, Michigan: The Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation, the James A. & Faith Knight Foundation, the Office of Community Development (representing the City of Ann Arbor, Washtenaw County, and Washtenaw Urban County), the United Way of Washtenaw County, and the Washtenaw Community Health Organization. The purpose of CommunityGrants is to provide Washtenaw County area nonprofits with an efficient and easy-to-use tool for submitting online applications to prominent local funders. This tool also makes it easier for funders to administer grant application processes and joint funding opportunities.
CommunityGrants was designed by Lighthouse Nonprofit Technologies, a nonprofit based in Ann Arbor, Michigan whose mission is to enable nonprofits to use the technologies they need to better serve their communities.
