DCCF Awards $54,000 in Large Grants

The Decatur County Community Foundation is pleased to announce that five projects will receive funding following the most recent review of large grant requests.


Fugit Township Baseball will receive funds for equipment and dugout improvements at the Clarksburg Baseball Diamonds. New Point Kiwanis will use funds to develop a walking trail at the Salt Creek Township Park. Decatur County 4 Kids will work with Sergeant Terry Hall to provide body safety training to 3,500 children in Decatur County. New Directions Domestic Violence Shelter will receive funds to repair structural issues on their building. And finally, a handicap accessibility path will be added to Travis’s Trail, the community walking path located on the St. Mary School campus (pictured)


In total, just over $54,000 will be awarded to these projects.


“DCCF is helping a lot of wonderful projects during this cycle,” said Kristi Jarvis, chair of the Decatur County Community Foundation’s Large Grants Committee. “I am especially happy that we could help build two new walking trails in the county. We know that trails are a high priority for people living in Decatur County.”
