CFBC is proud to offer two distinct granting programs this year, which provides the opportunity for eligible Boone County-serving nonprofits to apply for two CFBC grants in 2023 – one application per program. We are excited to announce our first round of 2023 grant recipients!

Congratulations to our first cycle of matching grantees, with the funds going to support the education of and development in Mental Health:

Each grantee will raise funds between April 15 – June 15, 2023. We encourage you to visit their website, learn more about their mission, and donate during this timeframe, which CFBC will match up to the awarded amount.

We also congratulate our first cycle 2023 rolling grantees, with the funds being focused solely on programming support:

Stay tuned as we share updates on the programs these organizations are running to protect the lives of high school seniors and college freshmen as they transition into young adult women and men, address local diaper need, and ensure inclusivity with after-school activity programs.


“The local needs of our nonprofits are very real and current. We received applications from 23 local nonprofit organizations but unfortunately, we are not able to fund them all. We are grateful to our Grants Committee for continuing to dedicate countless hours to determine where allocated grant dollars should go. It is never an easy decision to make, especially when we have so many going unfilled. We look forward to our second cycle of granting in hopes of being able to fill more of the grant requests!”

– Jodi Gietl, CFBC President & CEO


The second cycle of rolling grants will be awarded the end of June 2023. The second matching grant cycle focuses on the education of and development in the elderly. More details can be found here.
