Community Grants Application 2023-2024

In addition to providing support for programs identified by the Foundation’s Board of Directors and Advisory Council, the Community Grants program was established to support the many local organizations currently doing important work for the benefit of the residents of Muhlenberg County.  

The Foundation sets aside funds for this competitive grants program annually.  501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, churches, public schools and government entities are invited to submit applications for new or expanded projects that address the educational, civic and cultural needs of the county.  Awards are determined based on applications submitted as well as interviews and site visits.

Grants are considered quarterly with final decisions generally made about 6 weeks after the application due date. 

The 2024-2025 Deadlines for submission of grant applications are:

July 15, 2024 for August grant decisions

October 21, 2024 for November grant decisions

January15, 2025 for February grant decisions
