The Hendricks County Community Foundation (HCCF) is excited to announce two grant programs that are now live and accepting applications. The Community Unity Grant Program is a direct result of the Hendricks County Community Needs Assessment, which led to HCCF’s commitment to pursuing greater community unity in our county. This Community Unity Grant Program aligns with HCCF’s GIFT VII Implementation Grant Program with the same focus.
This program is designed to support projects and programs that encourage community unity in Hendricks County that are not already addressed in the Community Foundation’s GIFT VII Implementation Plan.
This program is open to projects and programs that meet these priorities:
- Increased civic engagement
- Inclusivity, diversity, equity & accessibility (IDEA)
- Voter education and engagement
- Volunteerism including public and nonprofit Board service
- Stronger sense of County pride/brand
HCCF has also opened the grant application process for Community Impact Grants. Community Impact Grants offer financial assistance for charitable programs and projects serving Hendricks County.
This responsive grant program is designed to be open-ended allowing for nonprofits and charitable groups to apply for funding to help meet the needs of their organization in service to the needs of Hendricks County.
Through these two programs, Community Foundation funding is available to local nonprofit organizations that are seeking to move their organization to the next level of service in our community.
Applications and further information on these programs can be found on the HCCF’s website at www.hendrickscountycf.org or by calling 317-268-6240. Community Unity grant applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, reviewed monthly. Community Impact grant applications are due no later than Friday, August 27th at 3 pm.
