Grants generally up to $5,000 and $40,000 to Indiana nonprofit organizations in Aurora and Ohio and Ripley counties for community benefit initiatives. Focus areas include community development, culture, education, health, and human services. Priority will be given to change-oriented and problem-solving grants, with emphasis on “seed” money and/or one-time grants, rather than for on-going, general operating support.

Funding area details include:

- Community Development: to include support for projects and programs related to community infrastructure improvements, public safety, economic development, housing, historic preservation, citizen involvement, civic leadership training, and other general community activities;

- Education: to include support for programs in pre-school, elementary, and secondary education, post-secondary education, and for special education programs, including scholarship programs;

- Human Services: to include the support of human service related programs in the areas of children and youth, senior citizens, disadvantaged populations, etc.;

- Cultural Affairs: to include the support of programs and facilities which are designed to establish a diversified regional cultural program that offers wide-spread opportunities for participation and appreciation;

- Health and Medical: to include the support of health and medical-related programs.

Applicants may apply for up to $5,000 or up to $40,000.

- Grants will be made only to organizations whose projects and programs benefit the residents of Ohio and Ripley counties and the City of Aurora.

- Grant applicants must qualify as exempt organizations under the Internal Revenue Service 501(c)(3) status or be sponsored by such organizations or qualify as governmental or educational entities or possess similar attributes.

- Grants will be made only to organizations which provide for adequate administrative and financial accounting and reporting procedures.

- Grants will be made specifically for sectarian religious purposes but can be made to religious organizations for general community programs.

- No grants will be made to attempt to influence legislation or to intervene in any political campaign (including the publishing or distribution of statements) on behalf of any candidate for public office.

- Generally, grants will not be made for projects, programs, and/or equipment which were committed to prior to the grant applications being submitted.

- Grant recipients will sign and abide by the respective conditions as set forth in the Foundation’s “Grant Award Agreement.”

Since the October 15, 2016 deadline falls on a weekend, the deadline has been pushed to the next business day, Monday, October 17, 2016.

Organizations can submit requests up to $40,000. There is a separate, shorter application for requests up to $5,000.

Preference will be given to grant applications that seek the participation of other contributions by using challenge, matching, or similar grant techniques (grant applicants are expected to make serious efforts in exploring additional funding for their respective projects through their own organizational resources, state and local government support, community and/or private foundations, etc.).
