“The Turnout Grant Cycle is designed to be efficient, accessible, and flexible,” said Jillian Isaacson, Galesburg Community Foundation Director of Grants & Programs. “It aids nonprofits as they respond to and identify new opportunities to continue their important work.”
The Turnout supports the needs of our region and addresses opportunities to make our communities stronger. Applications may include programs and missions in the areas of:
- Education & Workforce Development: Programs and missions that attract, retain, train, educate, and sustain residents to revive economic climate in our communities.
- Health & Human Service: Programs and missions that align, expand, collaborate, and maximize resources for positive sustainable community, individual, and family health and social services. Improve quality of life for all residents.
- Community Enhancement & Art and Culture: Programs and missions that encourage access, amenity, and quality of life that welcome and encourage population growth and economic stimulus.
- Nonprofit Capacity, Mission Sustainability and Reinvention: Inspire and encourage the untapped potential of the nonprofit sector.
“Organizations may ask for dollars pertaining to their needs to continue pushing their missions forward and serving our communities,” continued Isaacson. “Whether for capacity, general operating, or programmatic needs, the Turnout Grant Cycle is a great opportunity to support our nonprofits in an impactful way.”
The Turnout Grant Cycle is funded through the Community Foundation’s Impact Fund, which is comprised of unrestricted resources from generous community donors, and from individuals who hold charitable funds at the Community Foundation. The Turnout connects community members who love their community with local nonprofits providing valuable services in Knox and Warren Counties.
