More than $200,000 in grants available for Kent County nonprofits

CenDel Foundation logoDOVER — Nonprofit organizations supporting the needy in Kent County are invited to apply for grants from the Potter Charity Trust Fund at the CenDel Foundation, in partnership with the Delaware Community Foundation. The application deadline is June 15, 2015.

The mission of the Potter Charity Trust, created in 1843, is to aid the economically underprivileged in Kent County by supporting charitable organizations serving these individuals. The grantmaking committee has established three areas of focus that will be considered for funding:

• Crisis/emergency assistance funding, e.g. housing, utility, clothing and food;

• Medical care;

• Homelessness, including the provision of meals.

Grants will support proposals for charitable organizations and activities involving programs that have a lasting, positive impact on Kent County. The committee will be looking for collaboration among nonprofits and/or collaboration with a state agency.

The committee will award $200,000 to $300,000 in 2015 to qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations that serve Kent County. Each grant request must be submitted on a Potter Charity Trust Grants Fund 2015 Grant application form, available online at delcf.org/grants. Applications must be submitted by June 15, 2015, to 101 West Loockerman St., Suite 2C, Dover, DE 19904.

All applicants will be notified of the committee’s decision in writing by Aug. 31, 2015.
