The St Joe Community Foundation, Inc looks for projects in Northwest Florida with a focus, but not a limitation on Bay and Walton counties that promise long-term returns on the quality of life in our region. Grants generally range from $1,000 to $50,000, although larger grants may be available based on determination of need. We look for programs that: Make Northwest Florida an even better place to call home, Work toward a fundamental improvement in the quality of life, Include a plan for measuring success and financial accountability, Are structured for sustainable impact, Demonstrate a track record for success, or reasonable probability for success and economic sustainability, and Leverage support in concert with others to better address the greatest challenges. Priority is given to 501C3 organizations.
