To qualify, the organization must be a non-profit or a public institution, and fall in the foundation’s 11-county service area. The maximum award that can be given out to any organization is $15,000.
Officials with the foundation said they’re always excited to see what ideas people are working on in the community.
“It’s exciting to open up a grant cycle and know that we have this great opportunity to support important needs in our community. So, it is always interesting to see which request come in, and then see kind of the variety of needs in our region.,” said Marian Clowes, Associate Director for Community Leader for the foundation.
The deadline for the applications is September 15. Those who are awarded a grant will be notified in mid-to-late November.
