Foundation Offers Last Round of Operational Funding

Open DoorAs part of an effort to impact the local community in an immediate way, the Midland Area Community Foundation made operational funding grants available during 2010.

The temporary grant program is intended to assist with administrative and operational expenses as opposed to the Foundation’s traditional new project grants. The Operational grants program is a strictly temporary 2010 program.

“We see a need for service agencies to continue helping our citizens.  Right now they need to keep doing what they do so well, provide basic human services to our community,” said Jan McGuire, President and CEO of the Midland Area Community Foundation.

The Operational Grants are available to Midland and Gladwin County nonprofits only once more this year.  The final deadline is Oct. 1, 2010.  Nonprofits are asked to contact Jan McGuire or Ken Mault at the Midland Area Community Foundation to express intent to apply and to discuss process before submitting a grant proposal.
