Community Foundation grant applications available

> SOUTHERN INDIANA — For charitable organizations, putting ideas into motion takes funding. The Community Foundation of Southern Indiana wants to help organizations realize their goals and dreams with its annual fall competitive grant cycle.

The Community Foundation invites nonprofit organizations including: charitable 501(c)(3) status organizations, schools, churches and governments in or serving Clark and Floyd counties to apply for grants. The deadline for applications is noon Aug. 30. Maximum potential grant amount is $5,000 per organization, according to a CFSI press release.

An independent committee of civic and business volunteers representing both counties will submit the proposed recipients to the foundation board of directors. Following board approval, recipients will be notified in late October, according to Crystal Gunther, program officer of the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana. The funds will be distributed in mid- November.

Organizations seeking a grant may apply on the Community Foundation's Web site, cfsouthernindiana.com. Charities that received grants last year and wish to apply must first have submitted final reports from the last grant cycle by Aug. 15 to be eligible for funds this year.

The Community Foundation has awarded more than $20 million to charities and to scholarship recipients since its inception in 1991. The foundation considers needs which generally fall into the following categories: arts and culture, community development, education, environment, health, human services, recreation and youth development.
