The Community Foundation is uniquely positioned to convene common voices around issues, take risks, and foster the rewards of innovative achievements that improve the quality of life in our county. Grants from the Community Foundation support innovative problem solving and further the capacity of nonprofit organizations to serve Monroe County.
The Community Foundation of Bloomington and Monroe County achieves impact through four distinct areas of activity: Leadership Initiatives, Competitive Granting, Supporting Local Agencies and Supporting Donor Advisors. Each area of impact relies upon its own sources of funding but all benefit in some measure from the power of flexible funds which allow us to respond to our community, year after year, in the most relevant and beneficial ways. In 2016-2017, the Community Foundation will return $1.3 million to the community.
