Crawford County Foundation looking for nonprofits that need $10,000

The Crawford County Foundation has announced that its Impact 100 grant program is moving forward with a second year in 2018, and it is seeking applications from area nonprofit organizations that could use up to $10,000.

Organized by the foundation, Impact 100 is a group of county women who are united in the common cause to provide high-impact grants to exceptional nonprofit organizations serving Crawford County. The grants, which are for $10,000 each, are centered around five areas of focus: art, culture and tourism; parks, recreation and community betterment; education; health and wellness; and families.

Crawford County’s 501(c)(3) nonprofits are invited to apply for up to $10,000 in funding, which will be presented during the annual Impact 100 banquet that is scheduled for September 27. If your group is interested in applying for one of these grants, the first step is to complete a “letter of intent” by May 31.

Letters should include the following:

  • An opening paragraph that provides a summary with enticing information to inspire the reader to continue.
  • The amount of grant you are requesting.
  • A short description of the project.
  • A description of how your project fits the guidelines and funding interest.
  • A brief history of your nonprofit and its programs.
  • A brief description of your target population.
  • A copy of the Department of Treasury letter affirming your organization is a tax-exempt public charity under section 501(c)(3).

Your letter of intent, which should be mailed to Impact 100-Crawford County Board, c/o Laura Wallis, 106 E. Washington, Cuba, MO, 65453, will be reviewed to determine if your organization is selected to apply.
