Grant Funding Guidelines
It is our wish to meet the needs of every community in our footprint; however, our funding will target innovative programs that enhance the quality of life within our communities in support of the following strategic initiatives, which are Adult Education, Early Childhood Development, Financial Literacy and Workforce Development. Priority consideration is given to programs that target low- to moderate-income families. Examples of funding priorities with measurable outcome focus areas include:
• Improve education or achievement gain
Early Childhood Development
• Build children’s knowledge and skills for life and learning
• Increase neighborhood revitalization initiatives
• Build knowledge/skills in savings
• Build skills/knowledge
Old National Bank Foundation will ordinarily only fund one request per grantee per calendar year. Exceptions to this one per year funding will be rare.
We cannot fund every worthwhile endeavor. Our support is directed to areas that demonstrate the most critical need and can have the greatest impact in support of our funding priorities. The Old National Bank Foundation does not provide funding for the following:
Large-scale initiatives, capital campaign, or strategic investment requests will be accepted by invitation only – please send an overview/executive summary of this funding opportunity to firstname.lastname@example.org for initial review by Foundation staff.
