The Community Foundation will be collecting applications and disbursing these dollars in the form of grants. The cycle will remain open until funds are exhausted.
Any organization or group organizing a festival or event in Dickinson County may apply for a gran. The organization does not have to be a nonprofit to apply. Applications are online at www.communityfoundation.us click on the Apply for a Grant tab.
“This is something new for us, it’s very exciting that we have this opportunity in Dickinson County, and we are pleased that the County administration trusts us to do the due diligence to administer their grant dollars,” said Elizabeth Weese, executive director of the Community Foundation.
