The Chippewa County Community Foundation is pleased to announce that it is accepting grant applications for funding from the Healthy Youth/Seniors Endowment Fund. This endowment fund was created from an allocation of Michigan’s share of the National Tobacco Settlement. In May of 2000, the Community Foundation entered into an agreement with the Council of Michigan Foundations and the State of Michigan to participate in the national tobacco settlement by establishing a permanent endowment to fund community programs that contribute to healthy youth and healthy seniors.
To be considered for funding, projects must support either youth and/or senior related projects. Maximum funding will range from $500 to $2,750. Grant applications are due no later than September 30th, 2015 and decisions will be made by the end of October. Grant applications are AVAILABLE HERE!
Questions regarding this grant application can be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 906-635-1046.
