Howard Gregory was a longtime resident and leader in Yorktown. In 2000 he established a fund to benefit the Town of Yorktown at The Community Foundation of Muncie and Delaware County, Inc. Howard took great pride in his community and wanted to make sure that Yorktown continued to thrive and grow long after he was gone. In 2008 marketing and promotion efforts were re-launched for this important fund. With significant help from the Yorktown Lions Club, an additional $30,000 was contributed to this Fund. The Town of Yorktown Endowment Fund at the Foundation guarantees a steady stream of income to fund worthwhile projects in Yorktown for years to come.

Grant Procedures:

  • Yorktown Grants Committee will review grant applications once each year.
  • The Town of Yorktown Endowment Fund exists to benefit the Town of Yorktown.
  • Applications may only be submitted by nonprofit organizations or a unit of government.
  • Grants will be awarded up to $2,500

The Foundation does not make grants to individuals and generally does not make grants for religious purposes, for covering budget deficits, for travel, for fundraising events, for endowments, or for projects normally the responsibility of a government agency. Grants are generally awarded to 501(c)(3) organizations.

Each grant awarded will be evaluated and a post-grant report is required for each grant received. A post-grant report, including financial/expenditure information, is required for the organization to remain in good standing and be eligible for future grant awards. All overdue post-grant reports must be received before the due date of any current grant applications for the committee to review the current application.
