We Are Growing Together
Currently the McKean County Community Foundation (MCCF) does not have any regular open grants or unrestricted granting dollars. The good news is we are growing as we work with individuals in McKean County to develop and fund programs that will have a real impact in our community.
The McKean County Community Foundation will continue to build a strong Foundation by helping individuals and corporations fulfill their philanthropic dreams through the creation of permanent funds to perpetually benefit the charitable organizations or causes they care about in McKean County now… and for generations to come.
Competitive Open Grants are awarded through established funds, each having their own purpose, timeline, and requirements. The grants are made possible through the generosity of individuals, families, and organizations who have created funds to make a difference in their communities. For now we have a few special granting opportunities.
Special Open Grant Opportunities
Covid-19 grants are now available.
A special COVID-19 Assistance Fund has been established to help non profits that have been affected by the pandemic. Grants may be given to non profits who have seen detrimental impacts to their fiscal and administrative operation as a result of a loss of revenue, fundraising, or staffing.
