The Putnam County Community Foundation is excited to announce its most recent grant recipients from the Community Foundation’s largest unrestricted fund, the Community Grants Endowment, as well as from its 45 named unrestricted funds, created by generous organizations and community members.
“Our community is doing so much good work, and we are excited to offer resources to support some of the organizations that serve Putnam County,” said Dean Gambill, Community Development Director.
The Community Foundation recently awarded over $83,000 in grants to five community partners serving Putnam County. Grant recipients include:
- Friends of the Park Association of Putnam County
- Family Support Services of West Central Indiana
- Putnam County Community Emergency Response Team Inc.
- Russellville Community Center
- SAWS – Greencastle Presbyterian Church
These grants were recommended by the Grants Committee, comprised of 10 members, who reside throughout the county. “This round of grant applications was especially tough to judge. I’m so proud of the dedication, professionalism and empathy that the volunteers on the Grants Committee have shown throughout the entire process,” said Dakota Everts, Chair of the Grants Committee.
The Community Foundation’s next Community Grants cycle will take place in the spring of 2023, with grant applications due by February 1, 2023.
