Indiana: Unity Foundation Community Grants Program


The Unity Foundation of La Porte County is pleased to announce Unity Foundation Community Grants to be responsive to local needs.

Donor Name: Unity Foundation of La Porte County

State: Indiana


Type of Grant: Grant

Deadline: 07/21/2023

Size of the Grant: $5,000


Grants are available on a competitive basis to qualified nonprofit organizations, governmental bodies, and teachers serving La Porte County. In 2023 each organization may submit one application.

Types of projects are funded

As Unity Foundation embraces the future of serving La Porte County, the Grant Making Committee encourages submission of innovative projects. Many good repetitive projects have been supported over the years, but the preference is to seek out new concepts that will further enhance the quality of life and strengthen their county. Further considerations include:

  • Issues not adequately being serviced by existing community resources
  • One-time projects or needs
  • Projects that provide leverage for generating other funds and community resources
    Projects that facilitate cooperation and collaboration between organizations and the communities within La Porte County

Funding Information

Requests should be at least $500 and no more than $5,000. Organizations may submit one grant application in 2023.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Generally, only charitable organizations with verifiable 501(c)(3) status with the IRS, and operating or offering programs in La Porte County, Indiana, will be considered. Start-up or ad hoc organizations may not yet have obtained 501(c)(3) status. If that is the case, they suggest you find an organization to “host” the project or program and have them request funds with you.
  • You may verify your exempt organization status by visiting IRS Exempt Organizations Select Check.
  • Churches may request funds for non-religious purposes only, such as community programs/projects.
  • Governmental bodies, such as townships and fire districts, as well as educational institutions including teachers, are also eligible; however, please note the additional restrictions for those organizations under General Grant Making Policies.
