About the Process
Eligible nonprofit organizations may request funding through one of the two grant programs listed below.
The Strategic Grants Program is open to eligible 501(C)(3) nonprofit organizations seeking to carry out programs related directly to our funding priorities. Strategic Grants of $5,000 or more allow Old National to measure the direct impact programs have on the target population and create volunteer opportunities for our associates. This program also enables us to partner with community organizations who share our mission of advancing education and community & economic development in the communities we serve.
The Strategic Grants program requires that an initial application be submitted for grant consideration. If the initial application meets our minimum criteria, your organization may be invited to submit a full application for further consideration.
Community Partnership Grants
The Community Partnership Grants Program furthers Old National’s goal of being a good corporate citizen by providing smaller grants (up to $2,500) to eligible nonprofit organizations to carry out mission-driven programs. The application and approval process operates on a shorter time frame than the Strategic Grants Program. Utilizing this streamlined process enables nonprofits that may have more immediate needs to receive funding faster without expending extra resources during the application phase. Applications will be available again in January 2014.
