The eGrant Application Process
Choose a login name and password to create your user account in eGrant.
Set up an agency profile in your user account. If you’ve already registered and have a profile, please make sure you’ve submitted an updated profile for the current calendar year. Agency profiles may be shared with grantmaking committees, donors and friends of CFMC. For a list of items you’ll need to complete your profile, click here.
Application of Intent
This provides our staff with an overview of your program that allows them to determine if your project fits CFMC grant priorities, timeline and budget. It must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the posted grant deadline. All organizations submitting an application of intent will be contacted within three business days. Following staff approval of the application of intent, you may submit your full application.
The last step of the process is submission of your detailed proposal, or grant application, for review by our volunteer Grant Review Committee and CFMC staff members. Grantees that desire feedback on their application are invited to submit a full proposal 15 days prior to the deadline – CFMC staff will review the proposal and offer suggestions. All final decisions are made by our Board of Trustees. To view a sample grant application, click here.

If your program is supported with a grant, you will be required to submit a final grant report to share the impact of your project.
