Foundation Moving to Open Grant Cycle

The Vanderburgh Community Foundation has recently completed an evaluation of our grantmaking programs and timelines and have made the decision to transition our Community Good Grants Program to an “open” grant cycle. Starting in the summer of 2017, we will begin to accept funding proposals throughout the year rather than once a year, and our grants committee will review requests on a quarterly basis. We are continuing to work through the details of this realignment and will provide complete details as soon as they are available. We believe that this realignment will not only create greater efficiency for our board members, staff and volunteers, but it will also allow organizations serving our community to request funding at the most appropriate time for their own programming.
