Community Grants

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, Cave Creek!  

Non-profit organizations serving the perimeters of Cave Creek and Desert Foothills will now be able to apply for grants from the Town of Cave Creek with more ease, speed, and transparency. At its Monday, December 18, 2023, regular meeting, the Council voted unanimously to update and streamline the process of the Community Grants Program. 

The Town provides financial support for non-profit, 501c(3) organizations to help protect the health, safety and welfare of its residents, and encourage arts, history, education, science, technology, humanities, preservation, heritage, and culture of our community.  

For the first time, a new 5-member Community Grants Committee comprised of one current Council member, two residents, one business leader and one senior staff member will review all applications based on stated eligibility criteria. Recommendations for funding by the Grants committee will be forwarded to the Town Council for final approval.  

Here’s the timetable for grants to be awarded in 2024:

February 5      Applications released via the Town’s website and social media

March 4           Applications due back to Town Hall

March 25        Community Grants Committee reviews and scores applications

April 15            Council reviews and approves recommendations for grant awards

Since the Town derives much of its income from sales tax revenues, this funding will come directly from our residents and visitors to Cave Creek retailers. Thanks to all of you for supporting our Town Core merchants and businesses along the Carefree Highway Corridor. Our community will be an even better place because of it.  

For those of you who may be interested in volunteering for the Community Grants Committee, please contact Deputy Town Manager, Teresa Riza at  

Kathryn Royer
 Vice Mayor, Town of Cave Creek
