A Special Source of Funds
The John B. Findling Legacy Fund provides support for projects that benefit the neediest children of Tipton County.
Projects need not take place just at the Christmas holidays, but may be considered in any of the quarterly grantmaking cycles of the Tipton County Foundation. Proposals submitted by the October 1 deadline will not receive Board approval until December 8. Proposals submitted by August 1 will be acted on before October 1.
"Findling" proposals have had a special "shorthand" application process in recent years, but it has become clear that some important information was therefore not available to the committee. Accordingly, all grant requests to the Tipton County Foundation must use the same proposal process, beginning with a Letter of Intent. The details of your final proposal need not be cumbersome. Be sure to allow enough time for a response to your letter of intent and preparing the proposal.
It is not necessary for you to designate a proposal as a "Findling" project, but we will advise you if that is the Fund that supports your successful grant proposal. We also have Funds for Education, Women's Philanthropy, Arts & Cultural Interests, Senior Citizens Programming, the United Community Fund, and other projects that may be the best source to pay for your grant. Contributions to any of these Funds are welcome at any time! The committee, and ultimately the Foundation Board, will determine which of our Funds is the best one to use for a particular project.
The procedures for requesting support for a charitable project or program from
the Tipton County Foundation are outlined on our Grants
