Community Foundation Women’s Fund Announces 2021 Grant Recipient

Donors of the Women’s Fund of Daviess County, held by the Daviess County Community Foundation, have selected the fund’s nineteenth grant recipient. Daviess County Historical Society is receiving $10,000 for their Changes from the Ground Up project which will fund a portion of the facility’s rehabilitation project targeting improvements to the Museum’s ground floor.

A vote by mail format was used due to COVID-19 restrictions limiting in-person meetings. 29 donors cast ballots by mail, with this project receiving the most votes. The Women’s Fund grant will support construction of both a kitchenette and handicap-accessible, restroom-essential components of the larger project which includes creation of additional exhibit areas, as well as rooms for educational programs and artifact processing and repair.

The Women’s Fund is supported through private donations. To donate or learn more about becoming a voting member of the Women’s Fund of Daviess County, contact Mary Smith, Regional Director of Development at or 812-254-9354.
