We are officially accepting Spring Grant applications for Valparaiso non-profits. Fall 2018 Grants were awarded to Housing Opportunities, The Family and Youth Services Bureau, and Boys and Girls Club. Every year, we are asked what we are looking for in applications. The short answer is that we are looking for local projects that promote the three areas we try to bolster; culture, charity, and education. Aside from that, applications that have clear goals, a firm plan, and itemized budget are viewed as stronger. We want to fund specific projects rather than contribute to an annual fund or operating budget. Our Grant Guidelines specify whether your group or project is eligible. Please review before submitting or ask for clarification if needed.
If you would like to be added to our email list, please drop us a line through our Contact page. Please keep in mind that internal personnel and email changes can affect whether your organization receives our notification emails, so if your organization has a general email, you should provide that as a back-up.
Our Grant information letter and guidelines can be found on our Grant page. Grants for the Spring session are due March 15th. Happy proposal-writing!
