Grant opportunity from the Decatur County Community Foundation

Are you part of an organization that develops programming for women and girls in Decatur County? If
so, your group may be eligible for a special grant from the Decatur County Community Foundation.
Grant applications are now open through The Fund for Women and Girls, a grant designed to assist with
local programming that improves the lives of that demographic in Decatur County.
The Fund for Women and Girls was established in 2004. Since inception, the fund has doled out more
than $44,000 toward projects assisting women and children. Past projects have included: Decatur
County 4-H Council’s Safe Sitter program; New Directions Teen Dating Violence Education; and a
Mammography Assistance Program at the Decatur County Memorial Hospital. The Fund has also
provided scholarship opportunities to women returning to school to further their education.
The grant is open through February 29. One grant for $1,500 and two for $1,000 is available.
In coordination with the grant, DCCF is hosting a Breakfast at Tiffany’s event on Wednesday, April 17. A
seven-member committee is planning an evening that will feature a nationally recognized name. Tickets
for that event are now available at $30 a person, or $200 for a table of eight. Proceeds will benefit the
Fund for Women and Girls, and in turn future projects in Decatur County.
