Community Foundation Awards $24,000 in Microgrant Funding to Fourteen Organizations
Fourteen Macon County Legacy nonprofit organizations were awarded a total of $24,000 in Microgrants from The Community Foundation of Macon County (CFMC). Microgrants are targeted to help fund professional development and training opportunities for Macon County Legacy staff and board members.
“Due to budget constraints, nonprofit organizations often lack the funding to invest in professional development for staff and board members,” says CFMC President, Natalie Beck. “However, we know how valuable these opportunities are for overall organizational growth and impact. This year’s Microgrants provide opportunities that will ignite passion and allow our nonprofits to bring back best practices and new ideas for our community.”
The 2023 Microgrants recipients and individual grant awards are as follows: Boy Scouts, $1,400 Children’s Museum of Illinois, $2,000 Decatur Family YMCA, $2,000 Decatur Parks Foundation, $1,500 Empowerment Opportunities Center, $1,500 Energy Assistance Foundation, $1,900 Good Samaritan Inn, $2,000 Habitat for Humanity, $840 Macon County CASA, $1,500 Mamie D.
