Grants of up to $5,000 to Wabash County, Indiana nonprofit organizations to benefit local residents with limited opportunities and resources. Funding may be requested for a broad range of areas, such as arts, recreation, health and human needs, education, the environment, and civic and economic development, so long as the proposed activity fills a basic human need, creates opportunities for people who ordinarily do not have them, or increases the capability of a nonprofit organization to serve people who have limited resources and opportunities.
For example, the Foundation considers the arts to be a basic need for any society. Generally, however, the Foundation will fund only those arts projects that make the arts accessible to people with the least opportunity for exposure to the arts or the least opportunity to practice the arts.
Awards can be used to fund programs or projects, train staff or members, or improve an organization’s facilities if by doing so they increase their ability to serve the basic needs of people in Wabash County.

-Will provide opportunities for people with limited resources and limited access.
-Are based on evidence of need and include a method for measuring progress toward the stated goals.
-Demonstrate a high probability of having local impact.
