Lilly Endowment is inviting eligible community foundations in Indiana to apply for planning grants of $50,000 to $200,000 (based on county population) through the Community Leadership Grants component of GIFT VII. These planning grants are designed to help community foundations explore how they can effectively play a leadership role in their local communities; deepen their understanding of key challenges and opportunities in their communities; and prioritize those challenges and opportunities that they are best positioned to address. The planning grant application is set forth below. The Community Leadership Grants component of GIFT VII also includes opportunities for community foundations to apply for implementation grants and grants for compelling opportunities. The Endowment will share details about those application processes in 2019.
