The Ball Brothers Foundation in Muncie is accepting Letters of Intent for general grant funding through its Cycle II grants program. Grants of up to $100,000 will be awarded to projects that fall into the foundation’s six broad subject areas: education (higher education, public and private education); arts, culture, and the humanities (cultural activities & institutions); human services (including youth services); community improvement/development; health (including school and community wellness, youth development, and recreation); and the environment (including conservation and land management). BBF only provides funding to organizations operating in Indiana. Historically, the vast majority of BBF funding has been targeted to organizations in East Central Indiana with a particular emphasis in the Muncie/Delaware County area. Deadline: July 31 (LOI).

More than one-quarter of the grants are for education and improving K-12 classroom instruction. Awards vary. Each year the trustees hold two distribution meetings: in June and in November. The deadline for the next round of grants is Sept 1.
