Thank you for your interest in the Michigan City Community Enrichment Corporation’s Grant Funding Cycle. The Corporation was organized as a public benefit corporation to serve organizations that qualify as Section 501(c)(3) under the Internal Revenue Service and benefit the people of the Michigan City Area School District.
The MCCEC 2023-2024 online grant applications will be available in late September 2022. The deadline will be November 30, 2022 at 11:59 pm. CST. No applications will be accepted after the deadline. The current grant awards were awarded in March of this year. Click here for a list of the awarded grants for 2022. In the current grant cycle we awarded 43 grants. Nineteen of the grants were for $10,000 or less. We received applications totaling one million dollars. We award approximately $750,000 every year, including $100,000 that automatically is awarded to the Washington Park Zoo.
Your Grant Application should be “all-inclusive”, as presentations will not be permitted. However, the Board may request further information from you after a review of the Grant Applications. If your organization is applying for more than one grant, you will need to use a different email address and password for each grant application. No changes can be made once the application is submitted.
The grant application requires supporting files. These items include a Financial Statement for the current year and the previous year, including the current year IRS Determination Letter showing your 501(c)(3) Status. There are several other documents needed as listed in the Grant Application. New information this year is requiring the percentage or actual dollars anticipated to be spent during each quarter. We will disburse those funds at the start of the respective quarter. In other words, the entire amount of the Grant Funds will not be paid at the start of the grant cycle. During the application process you may print your application at any time. This may be helpful for proofreading it before the application is submitted. After submitting your grant application, you will be able to read and print it.
The Michigan City Community Enrichment Corporation will present a Grant Writing Workshop this fall so please watch this page for updates in early September.
