The Foundation is now accepting proposals from area non-profits for its annual Community Impact Grants. The organization will focus on projects and initiatives that benefit residents of Madison County for the 2022-2023 fiscal year.

Community Impact Grants will be awarded in amounts between $5,000 and $20,000. Organizations may apply for any amount within that range.

“We know these organizations are serving our community well, and we want to partner with them to address the specific needs they see each and every day,” said Foundation President, Frank McMeen. “We want to be part of the solution.”

The Foundation awarded Community Impact Grants to four groups for the 2021-2022 fiscal year, totaling $50,000:

·        The Boys & Girls Club – To fund a program to support youth fitness called “Jumpstart Jackson”

·        Habitat for Humanity – To fund a program to help elderly home owners with home repairs

·        Regional Inter-Faith Association – To fund the mobile meal service, “Bus Stop Café”

·        Mother/Baby Unit at Jackson-Madison County General Hospital – To fund the purchase of sleep sacks for infants born at JMCGH to promote safe sleep practices and reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)

While there are no specific areas of focus requested, priorities will be given to projects that improve the health and well-being of the community. 501(c)(3) organizations and funds of The Foundation that serve the residents of Madison County are eligible to apply. Proposals will be accepted beginning February 1, 2022 until April 15, 2022.
