Cassville Community Foundation accepting grant applications

Wednesday, May 24, 2017

The Cassville Community Foundation will be accepting grant applications for its 2017 grant cycle from June 1 to Sept. 1.

Not-for-profit 501(c)3 organizations that serve Cassville and its surrounding area are invited to apply. Applications are available at the Cassville Area Chamber of Commerce office, located at 504 Main Street.

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

• An itemized project budget

Completed applications must be returned to the chamber no later than Sept. 1 to be considered for the 2017 funding cycle. Organizations that are selected for grant funding will be contacted directly.

Last year, the foundation awarded $4,300 to eight local community organizations to help assist them with the funding of new or existing programs. 

For more information or to request an electronic application, email Kati Rose, foundation coordinator, at cassvillecommunityfoundation@gmail.com, or call 417-847-2814.
