Together we do MORE for McLean
The McLean Community Foundation has two grant cycles with deadlines April 1 and October 1. Grants must serve McLean residents in order to be considered. Available funds are offered as grants, seed money or challenge grants for projects that will benefit McLean residents. Please read our grant policy carefully prior to submitting an application for a grant.
The McLean Community Foundation gave its first grant in 1981 to the McLean Volunteer Fire Department.
Thirty-nine years later, we have given more than $1,750,000 in grants to non-profits in McLean and those that serve McLean Residents. As an all volunteer organization, every dollar that we raise funds the community.
Annually, the McLean Community Foundation partners with the McLean Community Center and Century 21 New Millennium to bring the McLean 5K to the community. All proceeds raised go directly to non-profit organizations that support the McLean Community. The McLean 5K is run on the first Saturday of October.
