In a heartening display of community support, the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana (CFSI) has recently announced a substantial injection of funds, totaling $58,846, into the heart of Kentuckiana’s nonprofit sector. This funding, divided among six deserving organizations, emanates from CFSI’s two competitive grant programs: Capacity Building and Community Assist. It’s a testament to CFSI’s unwavering commitment to fortifying the region’s charitable organizations, thereby catalyzing positive change across communities in Clark and Floyd counties.
The Capacity Building grants, aimed at bolstering a nonprofit’s operational capabilities, awarded four organizations a collective sum of $50,100. This significant financial backing underscores CFSI’s dedication to fostering sustainable and effective nonprofit operations.
Kentucky Harvest, a proud grantee, received $10,000 to bolster its relationship development and food rescue initiatives. By utilizing the Food Rescue Hero app, Kentucky Harvest aims to expand its food rescue and delivery operations, connecting more food companies with charities, and ultimately reducing food waste while feeding the hungry.
In addition to the Capacity Building grants, the Community Assist grants provide smaller funding to support projects that leave a positive impact on the community. This quarter, CFSI awarded two Community Assist Grants totaling $8,746.
The generous grants provided by the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana are not merely financial contributions; they’re lifelines that empower these organizations to reach new heights in their noble causes. With each grant, CFSI reaffirms its commitment to community growth, resilience, and prosperity, ensuring that the spirit of Kentuckiana remains robust and its future, ever so bright.
