New Sustainability Endowment Grant Offered

 The Starke County Community Foundation is offering a new award for organizations called the “Sustainability Award”.

Executive Director Sarah Origer says any organization can apply for this $5,000 endowment grant.

“It’s a simple, two-page application,” said Origer. “We just want to know about your organization, about your priorities, about your long-term goals, and long-term planning. The top candidates will be invited to come in for an in-person interview.”

She noted that this is a competitive grant and the committee will be looking for a non-profit organization that will demonstrate leadership, management, programming and a desire to encourage donations to their own permanent endowment fund.

The deadline to apply is June 6. To obtain an application, visit
