Special Funding Opportunities

TCF supports several grant programs that serve a specific objective that, while complementary, fall outside the priorities or timeline associated with our primary competitive grants program. In some cases, these special funding opportunities reflect the charitable vision of a local donor or community partner, while others were created to inspire new ideas and new audiences to advance community change.

We are pleased to be a partner in offering the following funding opportunities. Please use the links to learn more about eligibility criteria and deadlines.
