The Cambridge Community Foundation offers flexible funding, allowing grant recipients to use the funds at their discretion, including for general operating expenses.
Phases of the Grant Cycle:
- Application – In addition to how the grant will be used, we want to know what community need(s) your program addresses.
- Review – Proposals are reviewed by a team of community reviewers who make recommendations based on connections in the Cambridge community.
- Report – For selected grant recipients, we require a report on the use of the funds by the end of the grant year. Although funding can be spent on operations, the outcomes reported must be programmatic.

The Community Fund is made up of a pool of funds, built by donors. Income from these funds is pooled to make grants that help ensure a vibrant, thriving, and inclusive Cambridge where everyone can access opportunity and a good quality of life.
