Ball Brothers Foundation
The Foundation is dedicated to the stewardship legacy of the Ball brothers and to improving the quality of life in Muncie, Delaware County, East Central Indiana, and the state of Indiana through philanthropy and leadership. The Foundation awards grants to organizations that demonstrate “better practices” or strive toward “best practice designation” in conducting their affairs. Areas of funding priority include arts and culture, education, the environment, health, human services, and public affairs/society benefit. The Foundation offers two types of general grants: program/project and operating grants. It also offers a limited number of rapid grants designed to provide funding to organizations that require immediate funding for needs that include but are not limited to: continuing a project, providing professional development, buying equipment or materials for a project, travel to advance a project, formulate a project idea, carry out a mandated law or event, or for seed money to begin a new project. Rapid grant requests may be submitted at anytime between February 1 and November 30 of each year. Letters of inquiry for general grants may be submitted either by February 15 or July 15 each year. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
