The Coastal Bend Community Foundation (CBCF) has announced its 2022 annual grants online application is now open. Coastal Bend nonprofits can apply by visiting the Foundation’s website at and selecting “Grant Application” from the “Grants” dropdown menu.

Online applications will be accepted until June 15, 2022, 11:59pm (CST).

This year the annual grants program will award up to $450,000 to nonprofits serving the Foundation’s seven-county service area of Aransas, Bee, Jim Wells, Kleberg, Nueces, Refugio, and San Patricio counties.

Grants up to $10,000 for general operations of nonprofits will be unrestricted.

Grants totaling $10,001 and more must be program specific.

This change will allow the Foundation to move back to program specific grant making while also providing those organizations that are still potentially impacted by the pandemic to seek unrestricted operating funds, as applicable.

For more information about annual grants, visit the CBCF website, or contact Grants Director Cathy Friese at (361) 882-9745 or
