Grant uses

Overview

Roundhouse Foundation focuses our work in and across four areas that are fundamental to thriving rural communities – Arts & Culture (including Historic Preservation), Education, Environmental Stewardship (including Sustainable Agriculture), and Social Services. We understand the interconnections of these focus areas and value opportunities that work at their intersections. Small grants can support grassroots, innovative work and projects that may not have a need for a significant budget. Small grants also offer opportunities to explore and test new approaches and endeavors which can then be replicated for broader impact. For new partners, this is a great first-time grant program to consider as we get to know each other.
