Marshall County Community FoundationThe Marshall County Community Foundation is accepting applications for the first of two Community Fund grant rounds in 2015. This endowment fund award allows grants twice a year to nonprofit organizations for support in the arts, education, health and human services, recreation and the environment throughout Marshall County.
