Posey County Community Foundation Announces Women’s Fund Grant Opportunity

The Posey County Community Foundation Women’s Fund is now accepting applications for charitable projects or activities in Posey County. The Women’s Fund invites charitable nonprofit organizations to apply for the grants by completing a grant application describing how their organization would use the award.  Applications will be accepted through Friday, February 19, 2021.

The Foundation welcomes funding requests from non-profit organizations that are tax-exempt under sections 501(c)(3) and 509(a) of the Internal Revenue Code and from governmental agencies. Funding requests from other nonprofit organizations to carry out charitable projects or activities may also be accepted.

The types of charitable activities that may be supported through this grant program include arts and culture, community development, education, health, human services, environment, recreation, and youth development projects and programs.

The grant application process is being conducted online via the Community Foundation’s website at CommunityFoundationAlliance.org/Posey. Applications submitted by an entity under the auspices of another agency must include a written statement signed by the agency’s board president on behalf of the board of directors agreeing to act as the entity’s fiscal sponsor, to receive grant monies if awarded, and to oversee the proposed project.

The Women’s Fund Steering Committee will review funding requests and will contact grant applicants for an interview.  Once interviews have concluded, the Steering Committee will make its recommendations on funding to the Community Foundation. No lobbying or soliciting of Steering Committee or Board members will be permitted.

More information and grant application training are available by contacting John Campbell, Regional Director of Community Engagement and Impact at 812.838.0288 or jcampbell@communityfoundationalliance.org.

The Women’s Fund is one of Posey County Community Foundation’s endowment funds producing annual grants or scholarships.  For more information about setting up your own endowment fund, please contact Rachel Purviance, Regional Director of Development at rpurviance@communityfoundationalliance.org
