Posey County Community Foundation Now Accepting Grant Applications

The Posey County Community Foundation is now accepting online applications for their Community Good Grants Program. The deadline to submit applications is Thursday, August 1, 2019.

The Foundation awards Community Good grants to charitable partners located in or directly serving Posey County. Funding opportunities are available to support a broad range of local needs. Grants are normally given as one-time support of a project but may be considered for additional support or for expansions or outgrowths of an initial project.

Charitable entities can view details related to funding requirements and access the grant application via the Foundation’s website at www.CommunityFoundationAlliance.org/Posey/grants.

Agencies and projects not eligible for funding include religious organizations proposing activities that support a religious purpose, political parties or campaigns, endowment creation or debt reduction, capital campaigns, annual appeals or membership contributions, and travel requests for groups or individuals such as bands, sports teams, or school classes.

For questions, contact John Campbell, Regional Director of Community Engagement and Impact at 812.838.0288 or via email jcampbell@communityfoundationalliance.org.
