The Community Foundation awards grants each year that create positive and lasting impact throughout Frederick County. Grants are awarded from our restricted, unrestricted, donor-advised, fiscal agency, field of interest, and agency funds and support civic and cultural organizations, the arts, educational programs, environmental causes, elder care services, faith-based organizations, health and human service agencies, historic preservation initiatives, and youth programs and projects.
Grants can be applied for by 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, existing governmental agencies applying for an extraordinary project not funded by tax revenue, faith-based organizations requesting funding for non-sectarian activities and civic groups requesting funding for a community cause.

Currently, the following rolling grant is available:
The Health Fund for Frederick County Youth - this fund provides grants that support organizations providing services to Frederick County youth under the age of 18 who have extraordinary and/or life-threatening medical needs. The grant may be used to pay for equipment or surgery related to birth defects, and/or other medical expenses not reimbursed or covered through insurance. The grant cannot be used to pay for routine services or supplement payment for services partially covered by other agencies.
A letter from the current attending physician certifying the youth's diagnosis and need is required as part of the application. The grant cannot be paid directly to families or individuals, but will be paid directly to vendors and/or medical providers who will accept payment from the Community Foundation.
