The V.C. and Velma Knight Memorial Fund awards grants addressing basic needs, health, and human services in Lenawee County. Grant requests will be reviewed by Foundation staff and the Knight Fund Grants Committee prior to submission to the Board of Directors for approval. To honor the donors’ wishes and achieve the greatest good, highest consideration will be given to programs that: • Provide direct services to individuals and families. • Leverage resources through funding partnerships, matching grants, or sharing of other resources. • Can be sustained without continued funding from the Lenawee Community Foundation. • Encourage collaboration and do not duplicate existing services. • Encourage volunteerism, civic, or community involvement.
In addition to grants to other nonprofits, the Lenawee Community Foundation provides several programs that directly serve people. The Imagination Library delivers books monthly to preschool children. The Lenawee YOUTH Council involves teens in volunteering and making grants while VOLUNTEER Lenawee! engages people in volunteering and publishes a Resource Guide.
Interested applicants for either grant should contact Paula at the Lenawee Community Foundation at (517) 423-1729 or email@example.com to discuss the program for which funding will be requested and to obtain the grant application. Grants are due by August 1 at noon. ...
The Lenawee Community Foundation was organized in the 1950’s as the Tecumseh Community Fund Foundation. In the earlier days, this foundation operated as an annual fundraiser, distributing the funds raised each year.
