The Cass County Community Foundation Board of Directors is excited to announce that the funds available for community grants to Cass County non-profits during the 2021 grant cycle is a record high.  CCCF President Deanna Crispen announced that the Foundation has made up to $170,000 available for this year’s competitive grants. When making the announcement, Crispen stated, “We have continued to enjoy substantial growth over the last decade increasing our grant money from approximately $19,000 just 17 years ago to $170,000 this year. Our board has continued to work diligently to grow our funds so that every year we can offer more back to the community for important projects. This year’s pool of $170,000 is a $20,000 increase over 2020 and the sixteenth consecutive year that the Foundation has increased the amount available.”

Thanks to generous donations from Cass County citizens, as well as effective stewardship and financial management of unrestricted funds, CCCF has continued to consistently meet the community’s needs through awarding grants. Non-profit, 501(c) (3) organizations serving Cass County are encouraged to apply for funding for projects which benefit the community and improve the quality of life in Cass County.

A free grant-writing workshop was held Wednesday May 19th at the Cass County Community Foundation building.

Guidelines and instructions may be picked up at the CCCF office, 729 E. Market Street, downtown Logansport, or downloaded from the Foundation website (www.casscountycf.org). The deadline to return completed letter of intent materials is June 25, 2021.
