Each year, thousands of dollars flow from Jefferson County Community Foundation to support the good work of local charitable groups. Here are some of the upcoming opportunities where nonprofit organizations and citizens are involved:

In honor of our 10th Anniversary, JCCF  awarded $10,000 in professional development grants for nonprofit leaders in Jefferson County.  Grants were awarded May 18, 2015 to Habitat for Humanity of East Jefferson County, Port Townsend School of Woodworking, Horse Partners, and Key City Public Theatre.
