The Scott Community Foundation started in 1987 as the Scott County Health Care Foundation.
More than 25 years later our name might have changed, but our focus has not. One of our main priorities is still to advance the health care needs of the community.
Each year the Health Care Committee awards $10,000 to local agencies for projects that benefit the health of Scott County residents.
Since 2000, SCF and our donors have invested more than $450,000 to help local nonprofit organizations and community groups make our area such a great place to live.
The dollars for our grants come from many sources. Some grants come from restricted component funds that are targeted to a specific issue, project, or organization. Others come from our General Fund or non-restricted component funds.
Applications for grants from the General Fund and non-restricted component funds are available in the Fall of each year. In addition to other criteria the SCF Board may determine from year to year, eligibility for these grants include:
