New: CFGC raises 2013 grants budget to $20,000

CFGC’s board of trustees approved the 2013 budget at the December meeting, including a budget of $20,000 for unrestricted grantmaking.  This is a 400% increase from the $5,000 2012 grants budget.

We promised in our annual appeal that we would dedicate 50% of our year-end fundraising to an increased grantmaking budget, and we are thrilled that our supporters responded to positively.  Now we can dedicate much more than the promised 50%!

Not-for-profit organizations who serve Grundy County are encourage to apply for grants.  Please click on the link below to download the brochure with instructions for submitting a grant application packet.
