2015 CFMC Arts & Matching Grants Program

Thanks to your donations to the CommonWealth Fund, the Community Foundation of Morgan County is able to make grants that help our community grow stronger, be more sustainable and continue to be vibrant.

In 2014, the CFMC distributed nearly $30,000 in grants to local, community based non-profit organizations.

Selection criteria for the CFMC Arts and Matching Grants Program will include, but are not limited to:

  • innovative solutions to a significant community issue;
  • impact on the community;
  • ability to carry out the project, and
  • how the project will increase community awareness of the identified funding priority and the CFMC.

Applicants will be advised in writing regarding the status of the application.

CFMC Arts & Matching Grant Program  

The Community Foundation of Morgan County, Inc. offers arts and matching grants. Matching grants require that the grant applicant must raise an amount at least equal to what they ask for on their application. Arts grants require no matching funds.

The Community Foundation of Morgan County, Inc. welcomes grant applications from non-profit organizations or groups serving Morgan County residents. We do approve grant applications from organizations whose headquarters are located outside the county if a significant number of persons who will be served reside in Morgan County.

The foundation aims to support creative approaches to community needs and problems by making grants which will benefit a wide range of people.

Please note that the Community Foundation of Morgan County, Inc., and the Kendrick Foundation, Inc. operate without discrimination as to age, race, religion, sex, disability, or national origin in the consideration of grant requests, and will award grants only to grant seekers which do not unlawfully discriminate as to age, race, religion, sex, disability, or national origin.

We do not award grants to individuals. Please attend one of our grant seminars to learn how you can partner with a local organization.
