Linda S. Phaneuf Women in Philanthropy Fund Grant
The Ripley County Community Foundation Board of Directors established the Women’s Fund to promote women’s or children’s issues. The Ripley County Community Foundation is seeking applications for its Linda S. Phaneuf Women in Philanthropy Fund grant. This year $1,000 is available for this grant. The Foundation is asking non-profits to submit applications for projects to benefit the women or children of Ripley County. Money raised to support this fund comes from the Women’s Luncheon to be held this year on April 3rd. The unique aspect of this grant is that the women attending the luncheon vote on which grant they would like to see funded. Click on the Grant Application below.
Those organizations not receiving The Women’s Fund Grant will have their applications automatically considered in the 2014 1st round of small grants with a maximum of $500.
Additional Guidelines for our $25,000 Community Impact Grant:
Ripley County Community Foundation is providing an opportunity for non-profit organizations from Ripley County to work together to leverage funds and make a bigger impact in our community. The Board of Directors is looking for projects that will have a greater impact on the county than would normally be possible in its regular granting and that demonstrate collaboration with other organizations.
To qualify for this $25,000 grant:
• A representative of the interested organization must attend our informational meeting tentatively scheduled at The Osgood Grub Company on March 12th at 7:00PM.
• A letter of intent must be submitted to RCCF by May 2nd outlining the project and detailing the process. Specific information will be available at the March 12th meeting.
• The application will be due on June 6th.
Organizations that apply and are not awarded the Community Impact Grant will be asked if they would like to be considered in the Large Grant Cycle (deadline for large grant applications is August 1st) with a $5,000 cap without having to reapply.
