Established in 1996, the Knox County Community Foundation is part of a network of nine community foundations serving counties in southwestern Indiana.
To help advance its mission, the foundation is accepting Letters of Inquiry for its Target Lasting Change Grant Initiative. Proposed projects must strategically address a pressing community need and aim to make a significant and sustained impact for the population being served and/or in the broader community. The foundation has identified the area of Increased Economic Opportunity as the focus for this call. Increased Economic Opportunity is defined as the result of any project or program that improves standards of living in Knox County and may be addressed by many different approaches.
To be eligible, applicants must be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) or 509(a) of the Internal Revenue Code or be a governmental agency serving Knox County. requests from nonprofit organizations not classified as a 501(c)(3) public charity may be considered provided the project is charitable and supports a pressing community need. However, the organization will be required to obtain a fiscal sponsor to oversee the project and accept grant monies if awarded.
Letters of Inquiry are due May 26, 2021. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal.
