Miami County Grants

The Community Foundation has no deadline for many of their applications. Those seeking grant dollars for Impact or Community Grants may submit applications at any time. Impact Grants are for large project up to $20,000 designed to support organizations planning a new project, program, or services. Charitable organizations must first submit a Letter of Intent. Community Support Grants are several hundred to several thousand dollars and awarded to many organizations and provide support throughout the community.

No application deadline

Review the Grant Guidelines to make sure your project falls within the Community Foundation’s area of granting. We accept proposals on a continuous basis.

Many Grant Options

The Community foundation has grants awarded by local women for local charitable causes. There is also a grant for dance students, and we work  with  Miami/Cass REMC’s OperationRoundup grant program.

See the complete list of these grants below and look for specific deadlines.

“Seeing projects begin with an idea and then blossom into a community asset is what it’s all about!”
