Through its annual grant cycle, The Turnout, the Galesburg Community Foundation is awarding grants to 37 local nonprofits in 2022 to assist them in providing quality programming that benefits the people who call our region home.
To be considered for funding, organizations submit an application that is reviewed by a committee of local volunteers. Decisions are made based on community needs in the priority areas of education and workforce development; health and human services; community enhancement, art and culture; and nonprofit capacity, mission sustainability, and reinvention.
Funds for the grants come from the Community Foundation’s Impact Fund and Donor Advised Funds. “The important work of our nonprofits spans from youth to senior services, access to the arts, education, healthcare, food, and so much more—services that enable and enrich our daily lives,” said Joshua Gibb, Foundation President and C.E.O. “We are grateful to the many people who give to our Community Impact Fund to ensure that we can grant these dollars.”
Individuals with Donor Advised Funds at the Foundation have the opportunity to view the nonprofit proposals and may choose to fund specific organizations. “Through The Turnout, nonprofits have the opportunity to tell their stories and connect with donors who want to be charitable,” said Tiffany Springer, Galesburg Community Foundation Director of Grants & Programs.
The following 37 nonprofits will receive full funding for proposals submitted for the 2022 grant cycle:
