CFO’s 2014-15 grantmaking programs now open

The Community Foundation of the Ozarks has opened its 2014-15 community grantmaking rounds, which include more than $559,000 for nonprofits in the Springfield metro area and across the foundation’s southern Missouri service area.

The full list of 2014-15 rounds, including descriptions, deadlines and links to online applications, can be found on our Grantmaking page. If you don’t know if a round is right for you, you might check out our Getting Started page. For a list of agencies that have received CFO grants over the last several years, go to our Grantmaking History page.

Additionally, applications for grantmaking rounds from the Rural Schools Partnership also are available. Go to for more information on those regional, school-based programs.
