Grant Description
Grants of up to $5,000 to Indiana nonprofit organizations, teachers, government agencies, schools, and faith-based entities for projects that benefit residents in eligible communities. Funding is intended for programs within a range of focus areas including but not limited to health and mental health, human services, environment, education, disaster relief, the arts, youth, housing, and community development. Eligible projects benefit residents of La Porte County.

As Unity Foundation embraces the future of serving La Porte County, the Grant Making Committee encourages the submission of innovative projects. Many good repetitive projects have been supported over the years, but the preference is to seek out new concepts that will further enhance the quality of life and strengthen the county. Further considerations include:

  • Issues not adequately being serviced by existing community resources
  • One-time projects or needs
  • Projects that provide leverage for generating other funds and community resources
  • Projects that facilitate cooperation and collaboration between organizations and the communities within La Porte County.

Additional Eligibility Criteria
Generally, only charitable organizations with verifiable 501(c)(3) status with the IRS, and operating or offering programs in La Porte County, Indiana, will be considered. Start-up or ad hoc organizations may not yet have obtained 501(c)(3) status. If that is the case, it is suggested to find an organization to "host" the project or program and have them request the funds.

You may verify your exempt organization status by visiting IRS Exempt Organizations Select Check at: https://www.irs.gov/charities-non-profits/search-for-tax-exempt-organizations

Churches may request funds for non-religious purposes only, such as community programs/projects.

Governmental bodies, such as townships and fire districts, as well as educational institutions including teachers, are also eligible; however, please note the additional restrictions for those organizations under General Grant Making Policies.
