Community Impact Programs

In 2010, The Priddy Foundation® embarked on a new grant making strategy to complement their long history of charitable giving.  Community Impact Programs (CIP) was created to reach into specific areas of foundation interest and work in partnership with other organizations to address broad based and/or systemic change.  This is done through Collective Impact and other appropriate models. Organizations may not apply for a Community Impact Project, as projects are initiated by the Foundation.  Current and past projects include:
