The Community Foundation of West Kentucky will award several micro-grants to nonprofit organizations working to meet community needs. Chosen organizations will be awarded a $1,000 micro-grant.
The Community Foundation of West Kentucky is now accepting applications from area nonprofits that serve the communities of western Kentucky in the areas of Community Arts, Education, Health Awareness, Children’s Programs, Social Services, and Community Improvement.
Applications will be accepted until 4 p.m. on March 1, 2024. Each application will be reviewed for eligibility. Applicants must be defined as a tax-exempt charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Selection is at the sole discretion of the Community Foundation of West Kentucky Grants Committee with the approval of the Board of Directors as to which applications are accepted and awarded a grant. While a limited amount of funds is available, each area of interest will be funded. Submission of an application does not guarantee an award.
