Marshall County Community Foundation Receives Lilly Endowment, Inc. Grant

The Marshall County Community Foundation has received a substantial grant for the sixth phase of the Endowment’s Giving Indiana Funds for Tomorrow (GIFT) initiative.

Lilly Endowment, Inc. awarded the community foundation with a $500,000 grant that can be used for endowment building, operating support, college scholarships, special charitable and educational projects and programs, fundraising capacity building, and convening and technical assistance.

The GIFT Phase VI provides matching funds with at least half of the grant dedicated to building the community foundation’s unrestricted endowment funds.

The remaining $250,000 in grant funding may be used to support contributions to all other new or existing endowment funds with a fifty cent on the dollar match. Incentives will be awarded on a first come, first served basis with qualifications for the match limited to $100,000 per entity.
