The Community Foundation is accepting applications for its new Fund for Louisville Grants Program through September 30, 2013. In January 2014, the Community Foundation will award a total of $250,000 to support the capacity-building needs of nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations and nonprivate foundations under Section 509(a)(1) or Section 509(a)(2)operating in Metro Louisville.
Recognizing that the local nonprofit organizations consider support for existing programs as their greatest need, the Community Foundation and Lift a Life Foundation want to encourage creativity through grants that will help nonprofits: (1) IMPROVE existing programs that are working, (2) INNOVATE new approaches for existing services, or (3) INCUBATE new ideas that have been unrealized due to lack of funding.
The Community Foundation of Louisville will offer four information sessions for prospective Fund for Louisville Grant applicants on Thursday, August 22, 2013 at 9:00 A.M., 11:00 A.M., 1:00 P.M. and 3:00 P.M. at the Community Foundation of Louisville, 325 W. Main Street, Suite 1110. Staff will review the online grant application and answer questions from prospective applicants. Each session will last one hour. Organizations are limited to one representative at one session only. Space is limited, and reservations are required.
