Morgan County, Ind. – On August 12th, 2020 the Community Foundation of Morgan County (CFMC) Board of Directors approved a grant of $23,000 to six local school systems using enrolled student data from the Indiana Department of Education to divide the money fairly. The grant will help our local schools who applied, safely reopen. CFMC recognizes the increased need for our youth to go back to school in a safe and healthy environment is a real problem during the COVID-19 pandemic. “Our youth is one of our greatest assets in Morgan County, and we wanted to support our school systems with this grant to help ensure kids went back to school with increased confidence of not being threatened by sickness,” said Brittani Bentley, President of CFMC. “We recognize that the well-being of students during this challenging time was a top priority.”

Grants were distributed to Mooresville Consolidated School Corporation, the MSD of Martinsville, Monroe Gregg School District, Eminence Community Schools, Ninevah-Hensley-Jackson School Corporation, and Tabernacle Christian School. Each school was able to use the funds as they saw fit for the efforts of keeping our youth healthy and safe. Kirk Freeman, Superintendent of Monroe-Gregg School District stated “The generosity of the Community Foundation of Morgan County is reaffirmed by this announcement. It is in concert with their Mission Statement which pledges to enhance the quality of life for current and future generations through impact grantmaking.”

CFMC is proud to support our schools and the well-being of its students as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.
