COVID-19 Grant Cycle

This cycle is open to nonprofit organizations in Greene County that provide a direct service to their clients to address the local community’s immediate, basic and essential needs. Applications will be available until August 2, 2021.

COVID-19 Response Fund

The COVID-19 Response Fund provides support for individuals and organizations that are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The fund allows the Foundation to address the community’s most pressing needs by granting to local organizations who provide basic needs and services to residents of the county.

The Fund gives residents and businesses an opportunity to donate to the pass-through fund with 100% of their donations (net credit card fees) supporting the nonprofits helping our most vulnerable populations.

Funds in Action

The COVID-19 relief funding is made possible through a generous grant by United Way of Monroe County, Indiana United Ways, and Lilly Endowment Inc. We are pleased to partner with the United Way of Monroe County.
