John Randolph Foundation partners with charitable organizations in the Tri-Cities region of Virginia to build healthy communities and bright futures. 

Recently, we changed our grant application and timeline in an effort to save grantees precious time and to be better matchmakers between charitable organizations and our donor-directed funds. We now have only one Responsive Grant cycle a year, instead of two. Organizations wishing to apply for either a Responsive Grant or Community Contribution Grant ($1,500 maximum), should begin by establishing an individual profile in our online grant portal.

While creating your individual profile, enter your organization’s information; this will also establish your organization within our database. After setting up your individual and organization profile, you will then be able to proceed with applying for a grant.
