Women’s Fund to Accept Grant Applications

The Women’s Fund of Randolph County is now accepting grant applications for its 2020 Grant Cycle. Non-profit 501 (c)(3) organizations may apply for programs that empower women and children to create better futures. Programs should provide new solutions to unresolved community needs. Non-profits are encouraged to partner for existing program enhancement or new program development. Programs will be measured by the ability of participants to receive services that provide them a picture of a better life beyond today. Programs should focus on family crisis prevention, education, and youth. Applying organizations must have administrative offices located in Randolph County. Capital projects will not be considered for funding.  Grants will not be made to individuals or to groups for distribution to individuals. Religious organizations may apply for general community outreach programs, but not for sectarian religious purposes specific to a church’s internal programming. Applying organizations must operate without illegal discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, national origin or disability.

Applications are available at the Community Foundation of Randolph County, 120 West Washington Street, Winchester. Copies may also be downloaded from the web at www.randolphcountyfoundation.org.  Please contact Ruth Coffey for more information by calling 765-584-9077 or email rcoffey@randolphcountyfoundation.org.
