CFCC Awards $104,877.67 in Community Grants

Crawford County, IN – As a result of its competitive grant cycle, the Community Foundation of Crawford County (CFCC) recently awarded $104,877.67 in grants to seventeen 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations serving Crawford County residents. While not all organizations have an office in Crawford County, the CFCC confirmed that services are provided to residents here.

Grants were awarded to the following organizations in two categories, open (unrestricted) grants and education grants. The committee carefully reviewed and evaluated each proposal, then met together to discuss awards. This was not an easy task. We recognize each nonprofit that applied as a partner with the CFCC in providing for needs of our community. They help our citizens with all aspects of human services. The CFCC is proud to partner with them.
