The Marshfield Area Community Foundation (MACF) is pleased to announce the annual community grantmaking round. Each year the MACF gives grant money to area non-profit organizations to enhance the quality of life in our community.

These grant dollars come from the community grantmaking endowments, including the Marshfield Area Community Grantmaking Endowment, the Central Bank of the Ozarks Marshfield Area Community Development Fund, the Kurt Mikal Luebbert Memorial Fund, the Southern Missouri Bank of Marshfield — Ben H. Morgan Memorial Fund, the John and Anne Foster Family Fund and the Fay King Fund.

Grant applicants should note that in addition to our typical grant funds, the MACF has an additional $10,000 to grant specifically for health-related applications.

Applicants will need to select the category that their project falls into. Categories are Arts, Culture, History & Community Beautification, Education & Youth Services, Health, Human Services and the Environment. Grant requests for 2019 can be submitted online to https://www.grantinterface.com/Process/Apply?urlkey=cfozarksgrants or http://cfozarks.org/affiliates/affiliate-list/marshfield.

Grant requests for the 2019 period are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, July 27. Grants are available for nonprofits, 501(c)3 organizations, schools, faith-based organizations and governmental entities in the Marshfield, Elkland, Niangua, Northview, Conway and Fair Grove areas. Applicants will be required to make a short presentation to the selection committee prior to grant recipients being selected. The date and time for this are to be announced.
