2017 GRANT AWARDS
Our 3 unrestricted grant cycles for 2017 are now complete and the MCCF has awarded 35 grants totaling over $367,443! This impressive amount is due to the generosity of our donors who give so that our community is a better place to live. We were so glad to have some of our fund owners present for the three award presentations. Our donors desire to make Montgomery County a better place to live and we are so grateful for their support.
In Grant Cycle 1, we awarded 12 grants totaling $124,087. Seven competitive grants supported a wide range of interests... such as support for a Drunk Busters program that will be offered by the Waynetown Police, and the repair and repaving of half the Boys & Girls Club parking lot. The board also made some proactive grants to the five libraries in the county. Each received a $1,000 grant to use for the benefit of patrons with low vision thanks to the Luella Brake Fund.

In Grant cycle 3, we awarded 12 grants totaling $130,161. In this round of grants, support included funds to the Animal Welfare League for building repairs, to the Montgomery County Educational Foundation for teacher grants, and to Abilities Services for their Creative Abundance program. Three of our board members also awarded Community Engagement Grants. These $1,000 grants give our board members an opportunity to further support a nonprofit agency of their choice. During this cycle, MCCF Board Member Jessica Bokhart awarded her CEG to the Montgomery County Sheep Association, board member Peggy Burkett awarded her grant to Pam's Promise Transitional Housing, and board member Torey Rauch awarded his grant to the Youth Service Bureau's NOURISH program.
