The annual grants program

The Johnson County Community Foundation (JCCF) manages an extensive Grants Program. The annual program offers grants to nonprofit organizations for charitable programs and projects in Johnson County, Indiana or serving Johnson County residents.

We award the gifts through an organized process that enables us to help the community by funding as many projects as possible. If you’re interested in applying, please review our process carefully, and follow the instructions exactly, so we can carefully consider your needs.

Youth Philanthropy

In addition to the grant opportunities above, JCCF supports the Youth Philanthropy Initiative of Johnson County (YPIJC). This youth leadership program inspires excellence by providing young people with opportunities to solve serious community issues while developing a lifelong commitment to philanthropy.

YPIJC provides grants up to $500 for youth-led service projects. The grants are provided to nonprofit organizations and other groups in the spring and fall each year. We outline this program and provide a grant application link in the Youth Philanthropy section of this website.
