Grants to Indiana nonprofits, government entities, and educational institutions for programs that benefit the community of Tipton County and serve the needs of its residents. Applicants must first submit a Letter of Intent at least a few weeks before the upcoming grant proposal deadline.

Government agencies, including entities supported by taxes such as public educational institutions or volunteer fire departments, may submit proposals for special resources or new initiatives.

Incorporated social service agencies may submit proposals covering a portion of their general operating expenses, but must still describe the major programs they provide and the benefits the community derives from them.

Preference will be given to proposals that:
- Address priority community concerns
- Are change-oriented and problem-solving in nature
- Assist grant recipients to achieve certain objectives that are measurable and have a transformational impact on their clientele
- Will have the greatest benefit per dollar granted
- Have the potential of encouraging donations from the general public through a match by the Foundation
- Have the potential of leveraging additional grants from other sources such as government and other foundations

Grants will be made only:
- To groups which are nonprofit and charitable (including formal, informal, governmental, and ad hoc) and that serve the Tipton County community.
- To organizations that document their responsible fiscal management and adequate accounting procedures. These include a specific fundraising plan and current strategic plan.
- For projects or programs that are proposed in writing by the organization’s governing body.

The Foundation does not make grants to individuals or for the following:
- Political purposes
- Programs or equipment that were committed to prior to the grant proposal period
- Debt reduction
- Annual appeals or membership contributions
- Building of Endowments, unless located at TCF
- Projects that benefit only a few persons
- Travel expenses for individuals or groups
- Past Grantees who are delinquent in reporting on a previous grant.

Step One - the Letter of Intent:
- For organizations interested in submitting a grant proposal to the Tipton County Foundation, the first step is to send a Letter of Intent.
- Proposals are due on April 1, August 1, and September 15, so inquiries should be made and letters of intent should be submitted a few weeks beforehand.

Payments to grantees are not made until after Board approval each quarter, usually the last week of February, May, September, and November.
