The Grove Foundation is now accepting applications for its 2013 grant program, which will offer funding to local organizations and programs that benefit Downers Grove residents.
“We believe that there are many outstanding, deserving, and eligible programs and events in Downers Grove that would benefit from a Grove Foundation Grant,” Grove Foundation President Lois Kopis said in a statement.
The goal of the grant program is to support efforts that are unique, self-sustaining and/or serve diverse populations. In order to be considered, projects must benefit Downers Grove residents.
“Our community has generously supported the Foundation for more than 20 years," Kopis said. "This is the second year of our new grant program. We hope to sustain worthwhile programs with our support.”
The deadline for submittal is Oct. 1. Eligible groups will be notified by Dec. 1 and grants will be distributed on Dec. 15.
