Friends of the Animal Center Foundation (FACF) has developed a community giving program to fund animal welfare initiatives and projects in Johnson County, Iowa.  This will be a grant program, and it will be open any year there is remaining unrestricted funding from the prior year.

We recently learned about various animal welfare initiatives and projects in our community that need assistance with funding.  We all want the animals in our community to be healthy and happy, so our Board of Directors decided it is time we get involved and help.

Grant applicants must be a nonprofit organization with proof of 501(c)3 status.  The nonprofit organization or project must be based in Johnson County, Iowa.  The deadline for grant applications is midnight, September 15, 2019.

We are seeking community members to sit on a committee to evaluate and select grant applicants.  This committee will bring recommendations to the FACF Board of Directors for final approval and funding.  Committee members are asked to make a 2-year commitment, and will require a concentrated time commitment of approximately one month per year.
