Mini Grant Application

Mini grant applications of up to $2,500 can be submitted at any time of year and typically have around a two week turnaround. Please contact Becky Turney at (765)827-9966 or with any questions.

Strong grant applications are those which are grounded in an organization’s mission, align with the Fayette Community Foundation’s funding areas, and are intended to make a positive, lasting impact on the Fayette County community.

The Foundation does not fund the same project or program on an annual basis, and we encourage potential applicants to consider how their projects and proposals will be sustained by other methods once the grant funds are depleted.

Read the following steps to learn about the Fayette Community Foundation’s grant cycle process.

Organizations ineligible to apply on their own, such as service clubs, neighborhood associations, etc. may partner with one or more eligible organizations to propose collaborative programs. For such programs, the eligible organization will act as fiscal agent and project leader for any funds awarded to the work of the collaborative project.
