Grant Application Information

As You Consider Making a Grant Application . . .

  • Yours must be a nonprofit, education, or government group to receive a grant award.
  • An individual may receive a grant award only under special circumstances.
  • Political activities, general operating budgets, religious purpose programs for the benefit of the members of a specific religious group, capital building project campaigns, and the building of endowments are not generally funded.
  • All grant awards are made according to IRS guidelines.

Additional details about these requirements are included on the 2017 BCCF Grant Application. But please contact our Executive Director Dave Bowman at 765-348-3411 or dbowman@blackfordcounty.org to determine if your proposal fits the guidelines.

When a Grant Award Is Made . . .

One to two months after a grant application deadline, the contact person listed on the application will be notified by phone and by mail whether the grant has been awarded or not. In the following few weeks, the awardee will receive a Grant Agreement  that spells out the specifics of the award and must be signed and returned. Then Foundation issues a check in the amount of the grant award.

When  a Grant Award Ends . . .

The organization must complete the Report on Use of Grant Funds form and return it to the Foundation.
