GrantWatch ID#:

GrantWatch ID#: 181945

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The following are eligible to apply:

Non-profit organizations impacting Morgan County: The CFMC does approve grant applications from organizations whose headquarters are located outside the county if a significant number of persons who will be served reside in Morgan County. Only 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations and organizations that are exempt from filing for a 501(c)(3) status (units of government, school corporations, and religious organizations) are eligible.

The Community Foundation will award grants only to organizations who exhibit a commitment to non-discrimination.

The Foundation does not fund:
- Individuals: Individuals wishing to apply must do so with the cooperation of a non-profit organization, and the organization must submit the application.
- Organizations with outstanding grant reports due to CFMC. Programs with open grants may still apply, but, if approved, no further funds will be issued towards that program until all prior grants are properly closed.
- Projects that do not serve Morgan County citizens
- Projects normally fully funded by government
- Projects to build or fund an endowment
- Religious activities or programs that serve or appear to serve predominantly one denomination and not the community at large
- Political organizations or campaigns
- National and state fundraising efforts which do not directly benefit local agencies or chapters
- Projects that could be considered discriminatory
- Projects operated by for-profit companies

Application Process:
CFMC utilizes an online application process through Smarter Select. First, organizations must complete the Letter of Intent Application. This initial phase allows the CFMC to quickly assess if the goals of a proposal align with the goals of the foundation, before requiring organizations to submit a full application. Partnering organizations only need to submit one application.

Select organizations will then be invited to complete the Full Application, which asks for more robust information than in the Initial phase. Applicants are strongly encouraged to include specific measurement tools, as well as collaborative approaches for programs and projects that illustrate a strong vision for defined success. Partnering organizations need only submit one application per program, though a formal Memorandum of Understanding will be required for all joint applications at the Full Application stage.
