- About Us
The mission of the Carroll County Community Foundation is to connect people, resources and causes to produce a positive and sustainable change in the communities we serve. After we receive the money from our donors, we invest it and use part of the earnings to make grants to those 501(c) 3 non-profit organizations that are working hard to improve the quality of life in Carroll County for this generation and generations to come.
To that end, grants are awarded to fund projects for which there is a demonstrable community benefit in one of the following areas of interest: Health & Medical, Social Services, Education, Cultural Affairs, Civic Affairs, and Community Beautification.
Since our beginning in 1997, the generosity of our donors has allowed us to make grants of more than $3.2 million to help make our community a better place. This amount includes approximately $860,000 in grants and $2.4 million in scholarships, including $2.3 million in Lilly Endowment Community Scholarships.
This is exciting for us but we are keenly aware that there is a lot more work that needs to be done. Thank you for your interest.
