Grants are made to a broad array of nonprofit organizations in Benton and Franklin counties addressing: basic needs; arts and culture; health and wellness; vibrant economy; education and learning; strong communities; and, natural environment.

The Three Rivers Community Foundation serves as a clearinghouse for information on local nonprofits. Site visits by Foundation staff are continually held throughout the year. Information is gathered and updated so individuals and families can attain a greater understanding of issues and existing nonprofits in our community. These efforts also help identify gaps in local services and support.


Because we are a community’s foundation, we are able to respond to immediate needs and emergencies. The Foundation’s discretionary funds allow the flexibility to address current and emerging issues in the area.
