Women’s Fund Grants Program

Overview

The Women’s Fund of Posey County is used to make grants to support a variety of projects or programs that are important to Posey County women.  Funding requests are accepted once each year according to our grant cycle.  Funding requirements may change from year to year; therefore, grantseekers are advised to revisit this page prior to beginning the grant application process.

Grant Cycle

We consider funding requests for grants on a yearly cycle which typically begins each January. The requirements and instructions provided here are to be considered current and accurate only for the duration of the Women’s Fund’s grant cycle, which runs from January through May each year. Applications will be accepted from the January announcement date through the February deadline.  Applications submitted after the February deadline will not be considered.

Eligibility

The Women’s Fund of Posey County welcomes funding requests from non-profit organizations that are tax-exempt under sections 501(c)(3) and 509(a) of the Internal Revenue Code and from governmental agencies serving Posey County. Funding requests from other non-profit organizations to carry out charitable projects or activities in Posey County may be accepted; however, the non-profit may be required to obtain a fiscal sponsor.

Fiscal Sponsors

Applications submitted by an entity under the auspices of another agency must include a written statement signed by the agency’s board president on behalf of the board of directors agreeing to act as the entity’s fiscal sponsor, to receive grant monies if awarded, and to oversee the proposed project.

 Deliberation

The Women’s Fund Steering Committee will review funding requests and will contact grant applicants for an interview.  Once interviews have concluded, the Steering Committee will make its recommendations on funding to the Community Foundation. No lobbying or soliciting of Steering Committee or Board members will be permitted.

Reporting Procedures

If the funding request is approved, the organization may be required to submit a final report at project completion.
