The Chelsea Community Foundation, awards grants of varying sizes that strengthen Chelsea and benefit its residents. General grant awards typically range from $5,000 to $25,000

Grant Application

The Foundation will make grants to 501(c)(3) organizations, government entities, school districts and universities that provide programs that serve the area defined by the Chelsea School District. We do not make grants to individuals, sectarian religious programs, or to cover deficits or other previously incurred obligations.

Important Note: We have a new online grants management system. If you think you will apply for a grant, register your organization. Registration only needs to happen once, but is required before you can submit an application.
