The Cass County Community Foundation Board of Directors is excited to announce that the funds available for community grants to Cass County non-profits during the 2023 grant cycle is a record high. CCCF President Deanna Crispen announced that the Foundation has made up to $200,000 available for this year’s competitive grants. When making the announcement, Crispen stated, “2023 is our 30th anniversary year and as we look back, the impact of our grantmaking can be witnessed throughout the county. We have continued to enjoy substantial growth over the last thirty years, increasing our grant money from approximately $19,000 just 19 years ago to $200,000 this year. Our board has continued to work diligently to grow our funds so that every year we can offer more back to the community for important projects.
This year’s pool of $200,000 is a $20,000 increase over 2022 and the eighteenth consecutive year that the Foundation has increased the amount available.” Thanks to generous donations from Cass County citizens, as well as effective stewardship and fiscal management of unrestricted funds, CCCF has continued to consistently meet the community’s needs through awarding grants. Non-profit, 501(c) (3) organizations serving Cass County are encouraged to apply for funding for projects which benefit the community and improve the quality of life in Cass County.
