Organizations receive funding to further work in Johnson County

Published: July 27, 2018 by Stephanie Fox, Program Officer: Grants and Scholarships

The Johnson County Community Foundation recently awarded a total of $113,019 to support the vital work of organizations that are responding to the many needs in the Johnson County community. In the Foundation’s spring 2018 grant cycle, applications for community minded, collaborative programming as well as applications from the county public schools for their Education Partnership grants were considered.

The Foundation grants committee selected four deserving organizations as their Big Impact Grants (BIGs) for the 2018 Spring Cycle. They also awarded Educational Partnership Grants to the six public school corporations through the education foundations and the school corporations.

The four BIGs were awarded to ASSIST Indiana, Franklin Mayor's Youth Leadership Council, Midwest Food Bank and Nineveh Heritage Committee. Educational Partnership Grant recipients included Center Grove Education Foundation, Clark Pleasant Education Foundation, Edinburgh Community School Corporation, Franklin Education Connection, Greenwood Education Foundation and NHJ Education Foundation. Find details about each grant here.

Nonprofit organizations may receive community or “unrestricted” funding one time in a calendar year. Letters of Inquiry applications can be made every cycle if funding is not received during the previous cycle. 

 The Foundation is currently accepting Letters of Inquiry for the Fall Unrestricted Grants Cycle. Letters of Inquiry may be submitted by any 501(c)(3) nonprofit who is seeking funding for community minded programming; requests may not exceed $10,000.00. Letters of Inquiry are due via email to Stephanie Fox by 5:00pm Friday August 3, 2018. The Letter of Inquiry form can be found here.

A special thanks to our Platinum Community Partners!
