MCCF Accepting Grant Requests from Nonprofits

Montgomery County Community Foundation is now accepting grant applications from
local nonprofits. The deadline for the request for funds is September 15, 2020. Organizations
applying must be a 501c3 nonprofit and submit a variety of documents such as information
about their board of directors, most recent IRS Form 990, most recent financial statements,
agency budget, and project/program budget. Funds received from MCCF must be used in
Montgomery County for Montgomery County residents.
Grant funding is provided from the interest earned on existing endowment funds and
covers a wide range of interests. Several funds target the neediest in the community. One
new fund targets pre-k literacy programs and another new fund focuses on disadvantaged
people and vulnerable people. Other funds focus on animal welfare, the arts, literacy,
children, senior adults, health care and prevention, heritage preservation, and education.

Foundation’s website,
Organizations seeking funds must provide details about the project for which they are
requesting funds. Questions to be answered include what the organization hopes to
accomplish, how they plan to reach their goal, what community needs will be addressed, who
is the target population, what geographic area will be served, and how many people will be
served by the project. Grants from MCCF may be a portion of the total project cost.
