Foundant Login

New Committee Members: You have already been entered in to the system. In order to access the test LOIs and ultimately the actual LOIs, when you log in you will select FORGOT PASSWORD. You will be sent a link to your email address to select a password that you will remember. Once you’ve done that, you will access the login screen again and enter your email and your new password and that should take you to the Grants Committee dashboard. You should see two test LOIs we’ve set up for you to get familiar with the system.

Returning Committee Members: Please enter your credentials from last year and log in. If you forgot your password, please use the “Forgot your Password?” link to reset your password.

Not Sure? If you think that you are already registered in the system, do not create a new account. Call The Community Foundation (772) 288-3795.
