Numerous area nonprofit groups have recently shared . . .

 $178,590 

. . . in grants from the Western Indiana Community Foundation and its affiliates of Attica, Covington, Southeast Fountain, and Vermillion County Community Foundations.

Grant monies are made available by area citizens who want to help worthwhile projects and programs succeed. Many donations also come in from former area citizens who have moved away, found success and now want to give back to their hometown community. It is because of the generosity of hundreds of people like these that community grants are made possible.
