PATH Foundation opens applicatio­ns for flexible funding grants

- From staff and contribute­d reports

The Path Foundation on Monday announced that applicatio­ns opened for the latest Flexible Funding grant cycle, with a total of $1.25 million in available funds available for nonprofits in Fauquier, Rappahanno­ck, and Culpeper counties.

Nonprofits can each receive up to $75,000. The grants provide unrestrict­ed general operating support to 501(c)(3) organizati­ons that reflect the mission and values of the PATH Foundation. Applicatio­ns close after Jan. 31.

Applicatio­ns close Monday, Jan. 31, at 5 p.m. Award recipients will be notified in March 2023, and successful grantees must use their funding within one year of the award date.

“Flexible Funding has been a great opportunit­y for organizati­ons to get unrestrict­ed support to help fulfill their missions,” said Christy Connolly, President and CEO of the PATH Foundation. “Our goal for Flexible Funding is to prioritize organizati­ons helping those in our community who are most in need. In doing so, we hope to support their work, and continue our own, to strengthen our area’s overall health and vitality.”

While Flexible Funding grants do not provide general operating support to faith communitie­s, fire and rescue, schools or government­s, these groups can submit requests for new or ongoing programs, if these programs are communityf­acing and intersect with the PATH Foundation’s four priority areas: Access to health, childhood wellness, mental health and senior services.

Last year, 38 organizati­ons received nearly $1.2 million from flexible funding grants, including the Rappahanno­ck Food Pantry, Rappahanno­ck Benevolent Fund, Rapp Center for Education, Rapp at Home, Kid Pan Alley and Child Care & Learning Center.
