    September 17, 2012 No comments

    Nearly $30,000 was awarded this week by the Hendricks County Community Foundation during its second round of Deedee Daniel Opportunity Fund grants for the year. The grants benefit a dozen charitable organizations that help thousands of Hendricks County residents, including those in difficult circumstances or seeking educational opportunities. Other grants add to the quality of life in Hendricks County.

    “We received letters of intent from 43 respected organizations and identified 12 for grants underwritten by the Deedee Daniel Opportunity Fund and one anonymous donor fund,” said William A. Rhodehamel, executive director of the Community Foundation. “Many organizations provide valuable services to Hendricks County and we’re working hard to increase the Community Foundation’s endowments so we can accept more requests each year.”

    The next grant cycle of the Deedee Daniel Opportunity Fund begins this winter. Hendricks County organizations and projects may submit applications to the Foundation between Dec. 1 of this year and

    Jan. 13, 2013.  Information will be available at  http://www.hendrickscountycf.org/grants/oppfund_grants/index.shtml
