Northern Indiana Community Foundation (NICF) - Miami County Community Foundation (MCCF)
Grants to Indiana nonprofit organizations to benefit communities within the funding source’s service area and nearby communities. Consideration will be given to proposals in the areas of culture, education, recreation, human services, health and medical, environmental awareness, and community development. The funding source’s territory includes Miami, Cass, and part of Wabash Counties.
Applications should be submitted before programs/projects have begun.
Grant proposals will be reviewed using the following guidelines:
-Is there an established need for the program/project?
-To what extent is the program/project problem solving in nature?
-Is it appropriate to make a grant for the requested purpose, or are there more compatible sources of potential funding?
-Are there adequate resources to effectively respond to this request?
-To what degree is the potential benefit to the community and/or nearby communities?
-What is the capability of the organization and its personnel to achieve expected results?
-Is the timing appropriate to carry out the program/project?
-What evidence is there of cooperation and coordination with other organizations at this time?
-Is there a possibility the grant will stimulate matching funds from other sources?
-Does the grant application fit the overall charitable purposes of Operation Round Up?
GrantWatch ID#: 154157
Applicants must provide proof confirming 501(c)(3) status with the IRS (if applicable).
Because this Fund seeks to be helpful to as many organizations as possible, you are encouraged to seek funding from more than just the Miami-Cass REMC Operation Round Up Fund. You will not penalize you for doing that; in fact, when Operation Round Up sees that you have been resourceful – that is, your organization is willing to put some of its own money into a program/project, and has received or is working on receiving support from other organizations as well – that lends strength to your proposal.
If your organization has funds to complete this program/project without Operation Round Up assistance, it is assumed you will fund it yourselves.
