The Community Foundation is currently accepting grant applications for its 2012 granting cycle.
"Last year, we had the privilege to grant money to 10 different organizations, and we look forward to continuing this process on an annual basis," said Landon Fletcher, Cassville Community Foundation president.
Not-for-profit 501 (c)-3 organizations that serve the Cassville area are invited to apply. Applications are available at the Cassville Area Chamber of Commerce office, located at 504 Main St. in Cassville and First State Bank, located at 98 S. Main St. in Cassville.
Completed applications must be returned to the chamber office by Sept. 1.
The grant application requests the following information: a description of the community need or problem that the funding will be used to address; the project's primary goals and expectations; the number of community members who will be served and the collaborative opportunities; and an itemized project budget.
Organizations that are selected for grant funding will be contacted directly.
