Madison County Community Foundation -


Thinking about applying for a grant?


Below are some questions we would encourage you to think about as you consider what program and/or project for which you are requesting funding


 - Is the need being met a chronic or crisis need? (1 time vs. on-going)

 - If the need is chronic, does the program/project work to address the root of the chronic need, or are other services in place to do so?

 - Does this program/project empower those being served? 

 - Will this program build sustainability?

 - Increasing membership, networking and communication, financial resources, human capital, etc.

 - Does this program/project build collaboration?

 - Are there representatives from businesses, community members, clients, non-profit peers involved in its direction and success?

 - Are other similar programs/projects already happening the community? How will this project partner/share best practice/evaluate needs with existing programming?
