The Southeast Virginia Community Foundation provides grants to local, 501(c)(3) organizations in the following ways:

1. Bi-annual grant cylces: We hold a spring and a fall grant cycle each year, during which area nonprofits are encouraged to submit grant applications.

2. Donor-advised grants: donor-advised fund advisors are welcome to suggest grants from their funds to their favorite charities as frequently as they wish.

3. Designated and Organizational grants: these types of funds are set up by donors who wish to support specific nonprofits. If your organization is eligible to receive grants from one of SEVACF’s designationed or organizational funds, we welcome you to submit a grant request.

4. Field of Interest grants: field of interest funds support nonprofits that target a certain cause or community issue and have their own bi-annual grant cycles. Take a look at what field of interest funds we have available and how to apply.
