"Our community is the foundation for a better tomorrow"
Without the support of a great community helping those who need it most how can we achieve a better tomorrow?
At Griffin Charitable Foundation, our mission is to help our community by giving back to those who strengthen the health, wellness, and overall daily lives of members in the Rome community and surrounding areas. If you are looking for financial help with a project that is a need in your community, please read through our application process and fill out the introduction form below to contact our community liaison.
Please read through each bullet of our Grant Application Process. After filling out the initial contact form below, our Liaison Officer will contact you for a brief introductory phone call. During this phone call, we will give you a brief background of the Griffin Charitable Foundation, ask about your organization and the project you are working on as well as the areas this project serves. After the initial phone conversation, GCF will decide if you meet the same mission and areas served as our foundation.
If you meet the requirements, you will receive an application to fill out stating the following:

How you plan to sustain the program over time
What are the projects goals and how will you measure these goals
