Nonprofit Sustainability Grants

Application Process

The Kosciusko County Community Foundation is accepting grant applications for projects that aid in building nonprofit capacity and sustainability. Grant dollars for this initiative came from the Community Foundation, K21 Health Foundation and the Dekko Foundation.

Charitable organizations serving Kosciusko County residents may apply for funds to:

  • Hire consultants aimed at improving the organization’s ability to engage in fundraising and to attract and retain donors,
  • Purchase technology aimed at improving the organization’s ability to engage in fundraising and to attract and retain donors, or
  • Provide operating campaign matches

Preference may be given to former United Way agencies. Grant awards from this initiative will vary, but no single entity will receive more than $20,000. Grant seekers are encouraged to discuss their request with Community Foundation program staff prior to submitting an application.

The application will be available through the grant portal by January 15, 2022. Applications and all required attachments should be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on April 1, 2022. Applicants can expect to be notified of a decision by May 13, 2022.
