Grant Application Guidelines - Fall 2021



Aventiv Technologies Community Impact Fund has a purpose of reducing recidivism rates for individuals who are currently, or have been previously, incarcerated.


This opportunity is currently open to public charities operating in Alabama, Florida, Indiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Jersey, or New York that have been in good standing with the Internal Revenue Service for the last two years. Grant funding may not be used for outsourced activities or for programs focused on evangelism (though faith-based organizations are encouraged to apply).

Grantmaking Criteria:

Aventiv Technologies Community Impact Fund will prioritize grant funding to organizations that:

  • Have a primary focus on and demonstrated experience with serving incarcerated or formerly incarcerated individuals
  • Proven track record of success reducing recidivism rates for the target population (when compared to national recidivism rates for the target population)
  • Potential for sustained impact due to record of sound fiscal management and diversified revenue streams
  • Demonstrated commitment to recruiting diverse staff and board members that reflect the target population


Applications for the Aventiv Technologies Community Impact Fund are closed. The application deadline was 5:00pm (CST) on November 15, 2021.
