Men’s Fund of Vanderburgh County Announces 2021 Impact Grant Finalists

The Men’s Fund of Vanderburgh County’s annual meeting will take place on Thursday, October 28th at 5:30 pm, at the Evansville County Club. At the annual meeting, donors of the Men’s Fund will be selecting the 2021 Impact Grant recipient that will receive a $30,000 grant, while the other two remaining organizations will each receive a $10,000 grant.

Each finalist organization submitted an application for a program or capital project aimed at improving the quality of life in Vanderburgh County. Upon deliberation of the submissions, the Men’s Fund grants committee determined the 2021 Impact Grant finalists.  Their proposals are:

  • Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Indiana: One-to-One Mentoring Programs
