In collaboration with the United Way of Elkhart & LaGrange Counties, we are combining efforts to respond to needs that arise from COVID-19.
Together, the organizations are determined to provide long-term recovery in LaGrange County that is directly connected to COVID-19.
The Good Samaritan Fund at the Community Foundation will be used to support the community response to COVID-19. Donations made to the Good Samaritan Fund will support the COVID-19 Recovery Grants, ensuring local nonprofits have the ability to continue to provide critical services.
Government agencies, public schools, and churches are not eligible to apply
The Foundation has an online grant application process. Please review our grant guidelines to determine if your proposal aligns with them. You may be required to upload a few documents in the online application. We recommend you have them easily available in PDF format:
