Foundation Announces Annual Community Good Grant Cycle

Knox County, Indiana—The Knox County Community Foundation is now accepting online applications for their Community Good Grants Program. The deadline to submit applications is June 20, 2019.

The Foundation awards Community Good grants to charitable partners located in or directly serving Knox 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. Grant applications are reviewed by a volunteer selection committee that makes recommendations to the local advisory board, and final approval is made by the Board of Directors of the Community Foundation Alliance, Inc.

Applications must be completed online via the Foundation’s website. Projects and activities may be from charitable entities qualified as 501(c)(3) or 509(a) organizations and from governmental agencies and other organizations not classified as 501(c)(3) public charities when the project or activity has a charitable purpose. A full listing of program areas that will be considered for funding, as well as complete eligibility requirements, may be found at the Community Foundation’s grants webpage.

All organizations submitting grant proposals will be notified of the outcome via email on or before October 1, 2019.

Agencies and projects not eligible for funding include religious organizations for religious purposes, political parties or campaigns, endowment creation or debt reduction, normal operating costs, capital campaigns, annual appeals or membership contributions, and travel requests for groups or individuals such as bands, sports teams, or school classes.
