PERRY COUNTY – The Perry County Community Foundation is accepting applications for grants to community organizations. Proposals are sought for charitable projects and activities that address needs and opportunities in the county.

The foundation welcomes proposals from nonprofit organizations deemed tax-exempt under sections 501(c)(3) and 509(a) of the Internal Revenue Code and from governmental agencies serving the county.

Proposals from nonprofit organizations not classified as a 501(c)(3) public charity may be considered provided the project is charitable and supports a community need.

Grant applications must be electronically submitted to the Perry County Community Foundation no later than Wednesday, Sept. 3.
Organizations wishing to submit grant proposals are invited to visit the foundation’s website at www.perrycommunityfoundation.org/disc-grants-program for requirements, instructions and the online application.

Prospective grant applicants are invited to schedule meetings with the foundation’s director, Renate Warner, to receive an overview of the funding opportunity and to ask specific questions.

Contact her at (812) 547-3176 or send email to her at renate@perrycommunityfoundation.org with questions or to set up a meeting.

Grants will be announced by December and will be awarded at a January grant ceremony.

Founded in 1993, the Perry County Community Foundation is a charitable organization that helps community members make a difference where it matters, invest in the future of the community they love and create greater good together.
