Gibson County Community Foundation
Established in 1993, the Gibson County Community Foundation is one of nearly 700 community foundations in the United States today. We serve Gibson County, offering people a variety of ways to achieve their goals for this community through charitable giving.
Community Goods Grant Program
Funding requests are accepted once each year according to our grant cycle. Application requirements may change from year to year; therefore, grantseekers are advised to revisit this page prior to beginning the grant application process. Grants are normally given as one-time support of a project but may be considered for additional support or for expansions or outgrowths of an initial project. Grants are made possible by Community Good Unrestricted Funds and Field of Interest Funds which support a wide variety of needs in Gibson County.
