Nonprofit organizations focus tremendous energy and resources on fulfilling their mission. Meanwhile, many struggle to cover needs that are less visible – such as office equipment, technology upgrades, and building repairs.

The Infrastructure Grant was created to help fill the gap and Broadview in the Community awards $200,000 annually - two rounds per year. Below, meet several of the most recent $10,000 winners and find out how they are making a difference.

Since the Infrastructure Grant was established in 2021, we have gained valuable insights from applicants to identify a need we are passionate about advocating for, Safety. We believe that safety is a basic human right and that is why we are proud to offer the Broadview Safety Initiative Grant.

Applications for these grants closed on March 29.
