CFMC Grant Seminars  

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.

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