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.

chart2Since it beginnings in 1997, the Foundation has awarded more than $3.1 million in grants to local nonprofits. As the Foundation has grown, so has its ability to give back to the community.

We invite you to submit an application for financial support of your great ideas for nurturing Blackford County.

The Foundation accepts grant applications twice per year. The application deadlines are in mid-February and mid-July in each calendar year. Watch for the new year’s applications to be available in November.

Applicants are notified of grant awards within two months of submission.
