Foundation Offers Community Grants


Benton Community Foundation Board of Directors recently announced that they will be holding an open grant cycle for 2015, accepting applications for Community Grants all year long. Non-profits serving our community are invited to apply for a variety of projects; the Board has allocated up to $15,000 for these awards.

Interested organizations are encouraged to contact the Foundation prior to completing the application to verify that their project falls within the grant guidelines.

Community Grant Guidelines

Community Grant Application (Requests exceeding $1,000)

Community Grants may be used for a wide variety of charitable purposes; however priority is given to programs that reach many people, improve the ability of the organization to serve the community over the long term, serve Benton County residents, involve a collaboration of non-profit organizations, and have multiple sources of funding for the project.

Grant funding will also be available later this year, for projects that help woman and girls, through The Cookie Jar fund. The Foundation will also continue the Letters 2 Santa program, awarding $2,500 in grants the week before Christmas. Watch the Foundationís website for application details.

Please contact Benton Community Foundationís Executive Director Ashley Bice at 765.884.8022 or at for more information.
