To support Grant County quality of life issues.
Effective October 1, 2018, every $1 gift made to a Community Impact Fund will be matched with $2! This match is unique and encourages the growth of grantmaking resources that will enable the Community Foundation’s Board of Directors to be nimble to the ever-changing needs and opportunities of our community.
Lilly Endowment’s GIFT VII will allow us to match donations to unrestricted Community Impact Funds, like Marion Design Co. Charitable Fund, between now and December 31, 2020, or until the balance of matching dollars is claimed, whichever comes first.
Marion Design Co. is a Community-based Creative Studio run by volunteer and professional designers who saw a great opportunity with GIFT VII to forever address our local and everchanging needs.
“With a belief rooted in the power of design, our main purpose is to create solutions that propel and empower the people of Marion. We are a team prepared to take on urban renewal and revitalization, community branding, and identity development. We are collaborators, citizens, and neighbors who desire authentic relationships with the community of Marion and by working together, reveal the true identity of our amazing city.”
