November 19, 2014

CommunityFoundationLogoNewIndiana’s official 200th birthday is December 11, 2016, but initiatives across the state will commemorate the bicentennial leading up to and during 2016 and into the future. Indiana’ past and present are worth celebrating and there are abundant opportunities for local celebrations, projects and programs to reflect upon 200 years of progress with genuine Hoosier pride and ingenuity. The Marshall County Community Foundation (MCCF) is announcing a special grant round to recognize this important milestone in our state’s history and to encourage local participation in the celebration.

Up to $10,000 in funding from MCCF has been set aside for programs and projects specifically related to the bicentennial celebration. Nonprofit organizations with 501(c)(3) IRS status or organizations with 501© IRS status whose request is charitable in nature are eligible to apply for up to $2,000. Only applications that focus on the bicentennial celebration will be accepted for this special grant round. Eligible programs or projects must meet one or more of the following recommended goals or characteristics: historical, educational, promoting awareness, interest or tourism in Marshall County, celebratory, or engaging and inspiring to youth and young adults.

Applications for this special “Small and Inspiring” grant round will be due in the MCCF office no later than noon on Monday, January 12, 2015. A streamlined grant application will be available online at on Monday, November 10, 2014.
