that solve pressing community needs. Donations to any community fund are currently
being matched $2:$1 by the Lilly Endowment.
Additional grants recently awarded include three Women and Girls grants. These are
specifically funded by donations to the Fund for Women and Girls. Recipients include
North Decatur High School for their Preserving Dignity Project; New Directions for Self
Defense 101; and Girls, Inc. for their Informed Together Hygiene Project.
All donations to the Community Foundation are directed into specific funds as directed
by donors. Donations are invested into the market, and the gains earned are used for
grant distributions.
