Helping to make a difference.

Our Grants

The PATH Foundation offers several grant cycles during the year to help nonprofits and government agencies better the communities in Virginia’s Fauquier, Rappahannock and Culpeper counties. Flexible Funding Grants must align with one of our four areas of focus — access to health, childhood wellness, mental health and senior services — to be considered. Make it Happen Grants and Technical Assistance Grants are not required to adhere to those principles, but both enhance vitality and service within our community.

Update: Flexible Funding Grants are open from July 5 – July 29, 2022. Learn more or apply today!

Please note: to be eligible for funding, organizations must operate in Fauquier, Rappahannock or Culpeper counties in Virginia.
