Funding Priorities & Grant Eligibility

Grant Funding Priorities

We believe that giving back expands our passion for life and connects us to the people and organizations that need assistance the most. Here at GroundFloor Media (GFM) and CenterTable, we have a long giving history that has focused on three primary categories:

  • Child Abuse and Neglect
  • Childhood Hunger Relief
  • Youth Behavioral Health

In alignment with our giving focus, grant funding will be made available to existing, qualified nonprofit organizations that have been operating for at least two years and are focused on directly supporting the health and wellness of at-risk or neglected youth between the ages of 3 and 15 in the Denver metro and Boulder areas.

 

Nonprofit Grant Eligibility

Grants will be awarded to nonprofit organizations that are launching a new, innovative and entrepreneurial program or project within an existing, qualified nonprofit that directly supports the healthy development of at-risk youth.

Grants are typically only awarded to nonprofit organizations whose local annual operating budget is between $250,000 and $5 million. However, in some instances, an exception will be made.

The Get Grounded Foundation will consider awarding grants to local chapters of national organizations that are not a separate 501(c)(3).

Grant Reporting

2021 Get Grounded Grantees: We decided to simplify our reporting process as we know many nonprofits are still navigating impacts of the pandemic and are short-staffed. With this in mind, we ask that you answer ONE of the following questions by Sept. 9, 2022:

  • What specifically were you able to achieve as a result of your Get Grounded Foundation grant? (suggested length 200 words)
  • Please share a story that you think best represents the impact of this grant within your organization or benefiting the individuals and community served. (suggested length 200 words)
  • How will you sustain the benefits, momentum and spirit of this project/program into the future? (suggested length 200 words)

As a reminder, our 2022 grant cycle application deadline is Aug. 8, 2022. We typically review grants in September and announce grantees in October. Please visit our Get Grounded Foundation page for additional information.
