The Grantmaking Process at TTCF

Our annual grant cycle consolidates our funding streams into one easy process. Nonprofits apply through a common application and a volunteer grants committee reviews the applications and makes granting recommendations. TTCF’s Board of Directors must approve all grant recommendations before award.
