The Fulton County Community Foundation is offering five granting opportunities in 2015 with deadlines in the spring, summer and fall.

Kewanna-Union Township Grant
This is the third year for the Kewanna-Union Township Grant opportunity. Grants support charitable programs and projects within the Kewanna-Union Township community. Local businesses, residents and supporters of Kewanna-Union Township continue to contribute funds to make these grants possible.

There is $2,500 available to grant. Grants are for people, clubs and organizations that want to do good things for the people of the Kewanna-Union Township area. The deadline is also Friday May 1, 2015.

Women's Giving Circle
This is the fifth year that the Fulton County Women’s Giving Circle will be accepting grant applications. The Circle is made up of nearly 100 local women, who pool their resources in order to support organizations and programs that benefit Fulton County.

The mission of the Women’s Giving Circle is to inspire Fulton County women to create a better community. Amounts granted can be from $800 - $2,400 and are awarded to several organizations. The Giving Circle application deadline is Friday May 1, 2015.

Sustainability Award
You can receive a permanent fund at the Community Foundation! The permanent fund will be created in your organizations name and provide money each year to use for your organization. This will help your organization become self-sustaining and offer donors an opportunity to make gifts that last a lifetime.

This application must be physically received in the NICF office on or by June 5, 2015 no later than 5 p.m. If your organization already has a permanent fund with the Northern Indiana Community Foundation, you are ineligible to apply for a Sustainability Award. The application can be found on page 3 of the FCCF Grant App Packet.

Impact Grants
The first part of the application process is to submit a Letter of Intent Form and one-page project summary that briefly describes the project for which you are seeking funds. This must be physically received in the NICF office on or by July 10, 2015 no later than 5 p.m.  You will find the form for the Letter of Intent on page 5 of the FCCF Grant App Packet.

Applicants will be notified in writing if they are encouraged to submit a full proposal, or that their project is unlikely to be funded. A grant proposal form will be mailed to you and must be completed and physically received in the NICF office by September 11, 2015.  

Community Support Grants
This application is for organizations seeking smaller programming grants in the range of several hundred to several thousand dollars per grant. These grants are designed to be awarded to several organizations and provide support throughout the community.
The Community Foundation makes grant determinations for Community Support Grants in November of each year. Applications are due October 9, 2015 and the application can be found on page 6 of the FCCF Grant App Packet.
