Annual Grant Cycle

Since 2008, the Hillsboro Community Foundation has held an annual grant-making process in which qualified non-profit organizations may apply for a grant from one of several HCF endowment funds. In this time, over $265,000 in grants have been awarded to a wide range of causes and projects.

Applicants generally include local charities, churches, city departments and USD 410. Requests often cover projects or programs related to the arts, health, underserved children, youth recreation, or education.

A committee consisting of four HCF Board members and two non-Board community members reviews the applications and makes grant recommendations. The annual grant cycle is just one of the methods used by HCF and its donors to create a positive impact in the community.
