Our Process...our projects

  • COLA Gives periodically distributes grants and awards to nonprofit and community- based entities that deliver services and/or establish programs and projects that benefit the community. 

 

 

 

  • Grantees are identified through a process of recognition, nomination and selection by members of the giving circle. 

 

 

 

  • The process is not competitive; no applications are required or invited.
