The Envision Financial Community Endowment provides grants through two funding streams:

Promoting Resilient and Resourceful Communities – grants up to $20,000

For the purposes of our grants, funding is primarily for programs/projects aimed at those who are affected by socio-economic factors such as poverty, crime, violence, abuse, unemployment, underemployment, single parents, hunger, homelessness, lack of education, mental health/addictions.

Funding will be available for a wide range of programs/projects supported through multiple charitable avenues to address the funding focus. Types of programs/projects which will be considered for funding include:

  • Counseling
  • Education/classes
  • Outreach services
  • Prevention programs

Types of projects considered:

  • Leadership training
