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. Through competitive grants, we strive to partner with strong community organizations and help leverage resources to create lasting impact. The foundation aims to support creative approaches to community needs and problems by making grants which will benefit a wide range of people.
In 2015, the CFMC distributed $25,981.62 in grants to local,
community based non-profit organizations.
Funds granted out by the Community Foundation of Morgan County have historically hovered around the $30,000 mark, but thanks to the generosity of the Lilly Endowment and many other donors, grants in 2016 will skyrocket to $125,000 in potential grant funds – more than the total funds granted out since 2012. Nearly $100,000 will be specifically dedicated to larger impact grants, while one-time capacity grants will be allocated on a rolling basis.
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. We do not award grants to individuals. Please attend one of our grant seminars to learn how you can partner with a local organization.
