Grant Description

Previous Page Version

Grants of up to $5,000 to Indiana nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and education organizations to benefit girls and women in eligible locations. Past grants have supported afterschool programs, cancer screenings, programs for teen pregnancy, books for children, and assistance to local residents. Activities must address the needs of women and girls in Benton County.

The Cookie Jar is a collaboration of women working together to create a stronger community where women and girls are empowered to reach their full potential. We do this by sharing our resources…time, talent, and treasure…to offer programs focused on the needs of women and girls in Benton County.

Priority will be given to programs that improve the overall health or well-being of women and/or girls in Benton County.  

Please note that priority is given to programs that:

  • Reach as many people as possible
  • Serve Benton County residents
  • Are run by a collaboration of non-profit organizations
  • Have multiple sources of funding for the project
