The Miami County Community Foundation (MCCF) is again offering many granting opportunities for charitable organizations in 2017. Applications are available online or at the MCCF office at 13 East Main Street in Peru. Many of these applications have no deadline and applications may be submitted throughout the year.  

Grants are available through the Boomerang Sisterhood Giving Circle, which is made up of local women who pool their resources in order to support organizations and programs that benefit Miami County. The Sisterhood draws upon the wisdom and resources of Miami County women to create a better community through charitable giving.  These grants are in the range of $500 - $1,500 and are awarded to several organizations. The deadline is September 1, 2017.

No deadlines for Impact and Community Support Grants.

In an effort to make grant dollars more accessible for community projects, the Community Foundation has no deadline for many of its applications. Those seeking grant dollars for Impact or Community Grants may submit applications at any time throughout the year.

The applications can be found in the Miami County Community Foundation Grant packet.

Impact Grants are for organizations seeking funds to support a large project up to $20,000.

This grant is designed to support organizations that are planning a new project or program, or are looking to expand their services. Charitable organizations that are interested in applying for an Impact Grant must first submit a Letter of Intent.

Also available are Community Support Grants, which assist organizations seeking grants in the range of several hundred to several thousand dollars. These grants are designed to be awarded to many organizations and provide support throughout the community.

“We have been pleased with the results of removing our grant application deadlines,” said Connie Cutler, MCCF Director of Development. “When an organization needs dollars for a project, they often times can’t wait until the fall. Now, we can assist them when they need it most,” Cutler added.
