The Community Foundation exists to improve the quality of life in Muncie and Delaware County today, tomorrow and in the future. A well-managed and growing endowment allows us to award grants to fund projects that benefit the community.

We fund grants that address the broad needs of Muncie and Delaware County in the areas of arts and culture, community betterment, economic development, education and human services. Under the guidance of volunteer grants committee members that represent the community and approval of the board of directors, grants are awarded to support nonprofit organizations that serve the community.

Organizations can apply for grants through several grant programs. Results of completed grants are highlighted on this page. View the newly awarded grants in our press room.
