Lawrence County Community Foundation GRANTS

Lawrence County Community Foundation Announces
Grant Recipients of 2019 Open Grant Cycle

The Lawrence County Community Foundation Board of Directors awarded grants to thirty-three local agencies through the 2019 Open Grant Cycle. 

The Community Foundation is governed by a volunteer board whose mission is to improve the quality of life in Lawrence County for this generation and generations to come.  The Community Foundation accepts and manages individual and business contributions made to permanent endowments, some of which fund the annual grant cycle. 

The 2019 cycle was funded by the David Allen Jacobs Community Fund, Bob Bridge Fund, German American Bancorp Fund, Earlyn & Alvera Burkhart Hill and Orlin & Imogene Burkett Memorial Fund, Ralph W. “Shorty” & Bette Robison Fund, William A. Poling Fund for Lawrence County, Bicentennial Fund, Patrick & Sharon Robbins Fund, Dollens Fund, Chloral Hilderbrand Community Grants Fund, Jim & Annette Seib Community Fund, the Harold “Mac” & Shirley McReynolds Fund, and the Sargent Family Fund.  Additional funding was provided by the Betty R. Hilderbrand Fund for Mitchell Parks and Recreation, the Morris D. Norman Fund, and the M. Jeanette Norman Fund.

Grant checks totaling $69,384 were distributed Thursday; community requests totaled over $197,000.  An additional $7,035 was awarded as challenge grants to Bedford Evening Lions Club and Lawrence County 4-H Clubs & Fair Association.  The challenge grants provide matching funds, helping organizations gain awareness and raise funds for their mission.   

Barbara Terry chaired the LCCF Grants Committee this year.  “Once again, there were a record number of grant applications received from a wide variety of applicants who are deserving of receiving a grant, including several first-time applicants.  Unfortunately not every application can be funded, but those organizations who will receive grants in this 2019 cycle will be providing important services for Lawrence County and its residents.”  Terry added, “The continued financial support by Lawrence County residents and businesses makes this grant process possible”. Grants from the Community Foundation’s unrestricted funds now total over $882,000.

The Lawrence County Community Foundation is a public charity recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) whose mission is to be proactive in creating and growing an enduring source of charitable assets, and to identify and respond to the changing needs of Lawrence County.  For more information contact Hope Flores at (812) 279-2215 or hope@cfpartner.org.
