The Blackford County Community Foundation awards grants to organizations with projects enhancing the quality of life in our community. We remain flexible in our grantmaking, but typically address needs that fall into the categories of human services, health, education and community development.

All applications are reviewed by the staff after the application deadline and returned to the applicant for further clarification, if necessary before the application is considered for funding.

The Foundation will accept applications for grant funding by February 3, 2022, and again by August 4, 2022.

Additional grant opportunities specifically tailored for programs benefiting women and children are available through the Women of Worth grant program.

The Blackford County Community Foundation is in the business of awarding grants to local nonprofit organizations in order to improve the quality of life for our families.
