This year, The Community Foundation hit a major milestone in grantmaking. Since our beginning, we have awarded more than $50 million in grants to enhance the quality of life in Muncie and Delaware County.


From our first grants in 1986 to the end of 2018, more than $50 million has supported programs and projects in our community and made a difference in the lives of the residents of Muncie and Delaware County. Each grant was made possible through generous contributions by donors, like you, who can see the role of the Foundation in the community today, tomorrow, and always.

The Community Foundation grants to nonprofit organizations and educators throughout Delaware County through a variety of grant programs.
