The Vandalia-Butler Township community continues to grow and evolve.  With that evolution, we know that our citizens' needs change over time.  Finding resources for endowment and then responding to needs now and in the future is the challenge for the Vandalia-Butler Foundation Board of Trustees.

Grant Making Guidelines

Some donors to the Foundation have chosen to give discretion to the Vandalia-Butler Foundation Board of Trustees to decide who will receive grants from their funds.  These grants are called discretionary grants.

The Vandalia-Butler Foundation welcomes grant requests from organizations that benefit citizens in the Vandalia-Butler community.  To be eligible for a grant, an organization must be recognized as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, be nondiscriminatory, and address needs that are not met fully by existing organizational or community resources.

Generally, the Foundation makes grants to help launch new projects not addressed by existing organizations or to support special efforts of already established non-profit organizations.  A proposal needs to represent a unique and unduplicated opportunity that will affect a substantial number of people.

The Foundation processes applications for grants throughout the year.  For more information about criteria and how to apply for a grant, contact the Vandalia-Butler Foundation office at
