Freeport Community Foundation makes it easy for you to apply for a YAC grant online. Please read the instructions below before beginning an application. All YAC grant applications should be made online unless otherwise noted.
Grant applications with all required items must be submitted by 4:00 pm on the deadline date for funding consideration.
Provide the email address of the person ultimately responsible for the grant administration. FCF will communicate all pertinent information to this email address.
Step 3: Complete grant application
Your application can be saved as a draft, and when you log on again it’s easy to return to that draft, make edits, and submit the application. Each account maintains a record of the application history that you can access at any time.
Step 4: YAC will review your application
Your grant application is reviewed by the Youth Advisory Council. The council’s recommendations for funding are reviewed by Freeport Community Foundation’s board of directors. During this process, our staff may contact you for more information.
Step 5: Recipients announced
You will be notified by mail if your organization received full or partial funding or if funding has been denied. Decisions are typically made within 4-6 weeks after the application deadline.
