Thanks 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 2012, the CFMC distributed over $2 million in grants and scholarships from our own endowment and non-permanent funds, the Lilly Endowment and the Kendrick Foundation, Inc.
Selection criteria for the CFMC Matching and Arts Grants 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.
Please read the grants press-release for more information.

Matching Grants and Arts Grants
The Community Foundation of Morgan County, Inc. offers matching grants and arts 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.
