Wednesday, January 16, 2019


The Community Foundation of Northeast Alabama has proudly served the community for 20 years. To celebrate this milestone, the foundation has created a unique grant opportunity for nonprofit organizations within the region. The ‘Big Idea’ grant has been established to help cultivate and showcase the region’s creativity. Nonprofits must submit a video application proposing a innovative idea that will benefit the community.


The idea is allowed to be anything from a single big purchase to a new program proposal. As long as it serves the community in a positive way. The videos will be scored based on the content of the project, video production and technical skills.


President and CEO Jennifer Maddox believes this opportunity will spark a lot of great ideas within the community.

The organization with the most creative idea will win $20,000. The second place winner will receive $2,000 and third place will get $200. Pre-applications for the ‘Big Idea’ Grant starts March 20th. All videos are due June 20th and the winners will be announced on November first. For more information visit
