In 2017, 67% of grant funds went to youth programs.
The Blackford County nonprofit organizations that requested grants from the Blackford County Community Foundation in 2017 focused much of their programming on our local youth. These are organizations that may primarily work in developing art opportunities or improving the health and well-being of community members. Yet the groups work often at developing special programs that target improvement in the lives of youth.
Grants also focus on four other broad categories: community development, arts and culture, education, health and human services. For a list of the most recent grants awarded, see here.
