Giving Tree grants available for Carroll County nonprofits

Tuesday, July 20, 2021

Nonprofits in Carroll County can go to arcf.org/givingtree to apply online for Fall Giving Tree Grants through Carroll County Community Foundation, an affiliate of Arkansas Community Foundation. Applications must be submitted online by Aug. 15.

“Since our affiliate was formed in 2001, we’ve awarded over $1.4 million in grants to benefit Carroll County,” said Janell Robertson, executive director of the Carroll County Community Foundation. “That makes this 20th anniversary something to celebrate!”

Grants typically range from $300 to $3,000. Priority will be given to organizations based in Carroll County; however, the Community Foundation may consider applications from organizations based in other areas if they can demonstrate that their program will provide direct services to people in Carroll County.

Any IRS 501(c)(3) public charity, public school, government agency, church or hospital in Carroll County is eligible to apply. Other applicants may be considered if the project has a clear charitable purpose for the public benefit. Grants are not made to individuals. Applications will be reviewed by a grant-making committee from Carroll County Community Foundation.

“Through local Giving Tree grants, our state’s nonprofit organizations find support as they implement great ideas to improve their communities,” said Heather Larkin, president and CEO of the Community Foundation. “Giving Tree grants are selected by local people in each of our affiliate areas and awarded to local organizations.”

Funding for the Giving Tree program comes from hundreds of Arkansas donors who support the work of the Community Foundation. For more information about the Giving Tree Society, visit arcf.org/localgiving.
