About the grants process

The Community Foundation Tampa Bay will begin accepting Letters of Intent (LOI) for its annual competitive grants cycle on October 13 with the deadline for submission on November 12. To maximize the impact to our community, we have created five targeted focus areas based on community needs. They are:

• Community Vibrancy
• Economic Mobility
• Empowering Women and Girls
• Mental Well-Being
• Positive Education

At the event, you will learn more about the focus areas and have your questions answered by Dr. Jesse Coraggio, VP of Community Impact; Jessica Scites, Coordinator of Grants Management and Reporting; and members of our Philanthropy team. For more information, please visit our website, which outlines the competitive grants process and provides more information about the criteria and examples for each category.

If you have questions, please contact Jessica Scites at (813) 609-4865 or

We look forward to seeing you there!
