Knox County Community Foundation Community Good Grants Program Now Accepting Applications

(Vincennes, Indiana)  The Knox Community Foundation is now accepting online applications for their Community Good Grants Program. The deadline to submit applications is Thursday, August 27, 2020.

“This year, our Community Good grant cycle has expanded funding opportunities for our charitable partners,” says Lauren Osmon, Regional Director of Community Engagement and Impact.

Osmon added that the Community Foundation’s flexibility in meeting the needs of the community makes it possible for grant cycles to change from year to year. “Our board’s decision to change this year’s Community Good grant cycle to accept both project-based and general support applications was based on the needs in our community today. We know our charitable partners are adjusting to many changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are pleased to respond to their needs by changing this year’s grant cycle, and offering an expanded funding option that is well-suited to support their vital work.”
