CIRCLe Fund Grant Application Deadline Approaching 8th December 2016 There are two sides to philanthropy: generous donors who care about their community and the organization and people they are trying to help. The generous donors of Rush County Community Foundation’s CIRCLe Fund are eager to award funding to an organization serving Rush County and Rush County residents and are asking the question, “Can we help your organization?” RCCF’s CIRCLe Fund is searching for applicants for its fifth grant. The CIRCLe is interested in innovative programs or projects that are responsive to community needs, partnerships, and collaborative efforts. Their intent is to award one grant for $12,000 in order to have the greatest impact on our community. Applications for less than $5,000 will not be considered. Applications are available at the RCCF office at 117 N Main St., or on the RCCF website: www.rushcountyfoundation.org. Applications should be turned into the RCCF office, and the application deadline is 4:00 p.m. on January 30, 2017. Organizations must be located in or provide service to residents within Rush County, Indiana. Generally grants will be awarded to tax-exempt organizations classified as 501(c)(3) charities. Questions concerning the grant application should be directed to Cindy Taff (765) 932-2872.
