We are officially accepting Fall Grant applications for Valparaiso non-profits. Spring 2019 Grants were awarded to Dressed for School, YMCA, Hilltop, and All About Art. 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 Fall session are due October 15th. Best of luck to everyone!
