February 1 is deadline to apply for MCCF grants
The Montgomery County Community Foundation reminds Montgomery County nonprofits that the deadline to apply for grant funds is Tuesday, Feb. 1. Applications are currently being accepted online for the spring grant cycle with approximately $125,000 available to support Montgomery County nonprofit organizations and community projects.
Full application details, a fact sheet, and a link to the application form can be found online by selecting Montgomery County under County Listing at swiowafoundations.org.
Applications will only be accepted through the online system. Please note that there is a new grant application portal this cycle; all applicants will need to create a new account when first accessing the application.
This cycle of grants is made possible through the State of Iowa County Endowment Fund Program and is funded by a percentage of the state’s commercial gaming tax revenue, which is distributed annually to participating community foundations associated with counties without a state-issued gaming license. Only organizations providing services in Montgomery County are eligible to apply. They must be able to demonstrate broad community/county support and be an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) public charity, a local municipality, or a fiscally sponsored project.
For spring 2022, the Montgomery County Community Foundation will entertain requests for capital and program support. Requests for general operating support will not be considered.
Please contact Stacey Goodman (email@example.com) or Sydney Calcagno (firstname.lastname@example.org) at 800-794-3458 with application-related questions. All completed grant applications will be considered at the March board meeting, with applicants being notified of funding decisions by the end of March.
