September 7, 2022, Fort Wayne, IN — The Mad Anthonys Foundation unveiled a new program enabling all northeast Indiana-based nonprofits to apply for grants, effective immediately.
Previously, the Foundation had donated funds raised through its two signature events – the Pro-Am golf classic and Red Coat Gala – to a small number of nonprofits on an annual basis. Beginning in 2022, the Mad Anthonys Foundation board of directors made the decision to expand grant opportunities to all northeast-Indiana based organizations, at the same time expanding the Foundation’s impact and reach.
Under the new process, northeast Indiana-based nonprofits will have two windows a year to submit grant applications, with submissions required 60 days prior to June 1 and December 1. The Foundation will focus on applications for initiatives that have the potential to strengthen opportunities for leadership development throughout the community.
“We are excited about this new direction for the Mad Anthonys Foundation and its potential impact on the many amazing nonprofits serving our region,” said Sherri Miller, board chair of Mad Anthonys. “Throughout the years, we’ve contributed over $5 million to a variety of charities. We’re proud of the support we’ve given the community for more than 60 years, and we can’t wait to begin supporting new organizations and causes that are important to the health and success of northeast Indiana.”
Details on the application process, applicant eligibility and other important information are available at the Mad Anthonys website.
