Field of Interst Grants Offered by HCCF
February 6, 2008 - The Hancock County Community Foundation has announced its 2008 Field of Interest Grant Cycle. Field of Interest Grants are generated by funds that have been designated by the donor to go to a specific cause but not necessarily a particular organization. There are currently three Field of Interest Grants for which qualifying organizations are invited to apply:
*Robert and Vera Maxwell Endowment Fund (Hospice Care) – for organizations that directly support hospice programs and/or educate individuals and families on the issues involved in hospice care;
*Prevent Child Abuse Endowment Fund – for organizations that work to prevent child abuse and/or domestic violence or that provide education on issues surrounding child abuse, domestic violence, and/or family nurturing; and
*Addictions and Substance Abuse Education and Treatment Endowment Fund – for organizations providing education and/or treatment to those individuals who are suffering from addictions, including alcohol and/or controlled substances.
In order to qualify for funds, applicants must be certified nonprofit organizations with administrative offices in Hancock County, Indiana.
Applications for all Field of Interest Grants are due to the Foundation office by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, March 28, 2008. If you have questions about whether your organization qualifies or would like to obtain an application, please contact Rachel Strong, Program Officer, at 317-462-8870 extension 226 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Hancock County Community Foundation (HCCF) was established in 1992 to perpetuate the rich heritage of philanthropy in the county and to provide new opportunities for donors. HCCF receives gifts from individuals, families, organizations, corporations and other foundations and invests these gifts to create a perpetual income stream. HCCF then disperses this income as designated by the donor or to meet the needs of the community. The distribution of income can be in the form of scholarships to individuals or grants to charitable institutions and programs. All have the purpose of enabling others to build and improve the quality of life within the community.
