  • 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.

CFMC Arts Grant Program  

2015 CFMC Arts Grants Smarter Select Button


Arts grants do not require applicants to raise matching funds, and provide a wealth of arts education to the people of Morgan County. In 2014, some of the programs funded include; Arts Programming at The Haven Youth Center, the replacement of percussion equipment for the Mooresville High School Band, an outreach of live music for the Martinsville Schools, as well as a variety of other programming that benefited many individuals.

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.
