CommunityFoundationLogoNewThe Marshall County Community Foundation will hold a press conference Wednesday, April 12 at 4 p.m. to announce the recipients for the Spring 2017 MCCF Community Fund and Vonnegut Fund Grant Round.

Unrestricted (community) fund endowments are the most flexible and responsive of the Foundation’s funds in addressing current and emerging needs. Grants from unrestricted endowment funds typically support projects focusing on the arts, education, health and human services, recreation and the environment. The first grants from the MCCF Community Fund were awarded in 1995; since then MCCF has awarded over $3.5 million in total grants to the community from unrestricted funds alone.

In addition to the MCCF Community Fund, several new unrestricted funds also support emerging needs in Marshall County. These funds include the Barbara and Ralph Winters Community Fund, the Brian and Patricia Kitch Family Community Fund, the C & M Overmyer Unrestricted Endowment Fund, the iAB Financial Bank Community Fund, the John and Kay Finlay Community Fund, the Philip and Sylvia Bieghler Community Fund, and the Paul and Carol Nye Community Fund.

The press conference will be held at the KeyBank Conference Room, 2701 N. Michigan Street, Plymouth, IN  46563.
