COMMUNITY FOUNDATIONS BENEFITED:
Attica | Covington | Southeast Fountain | Vermillion County
Grant monies are made available by area citizens who want to help worthwhile projects and programs succeed. Many donations also come in from former area citizens who have moved away, found success and now want to give back to their hometown community. It is because of the generosity of hundreds of people like these that community grants are made possible.
