About the 30th Anniversary Grant Program
To commemorate three decades of philanthropy, the Community Foundation will be awarding $30,000 in grants — $15,000 each to a pair of Clark and Floyd County nonprofit organizations. The grants will be awarded at the Foundation’s 30th Anniversary Event, which will take place in December.
From Oct. 1-15, the public had the opportunity to nominate deserving nonprofits. Those organizations needed to provide proof that they serve the residents of Clark and Floyd Counties, have a physical location in Clark or Floyd County, and are a verified 501c3 public charity in good standing with the IRS.
Application screening began on Oct. 19. To provide a more level playing field, two categories were created based on organization budget size. Five finalists from each category were selected and notified.
Now, beginning Wednesday, Nov. 10 and lasting for 72 hours, community members will have the opportunity to electronically vote for one organization from each category. Selected winning nonprofits will be officially announced at the Community Foundation’s 30th Anniversary Event in December.
