Applications now are online for Unity Foundation of La Porte County’s 2017 Community Fund Grants also known as “Power for Good” grants.
In 2016, more than $132,000 was awarded to 81 local nonprofit projects. The grants are supported by earnings from unrestricted “Community Funds.”
The application for the annual grants is now available online http://uflc.net/grants/community-grants/ to all nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations located in, or serving La Porte County residents.
A committee of dedicated volunteers from throughout the county evaluates and awards grants of up to $3,000 each. Eligible projects and programs fall into numerous categories, including but not limited to, arts and culture, health, human services, environment, education, and projects that strengthen La Porte County in meaningful ways.
The deadline for submitting this year’s Community Fund Grant applications is 11:59 p.m. CST on Saturday, July 1. Organizations may submit two separate project grants for consideration.
In addition to the grant applications, Unity Foundation’s annual report is available online on its web site at www.uflc.net. Past year grant recipients are listed in the report.
