Foundation warning organizations of grant deadline

MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

The Mississippi County Community Foundation is taking applications for their annual Giving Tree Grant.

Non-profit organizations that serve Mississippi County can fill out an application found on their website.

The grants will be awarded on a first-come first-serve basis to 15 organizations ranging from $500 to $2,500.  

Executive Director for the foundation Nickie Bell said the deadline is approaching.

“We are basically just looking for good works,” Bell said. “The application process ends February 15.”

Bell said to be considered for the grant, organizations must meet the deadline date.

“A local board will then go through the applications to make the final decisions,” Bell said.

Bell said if anyone misses this opportunity there are other grants available throughout the year.
