Grants available for senior-helping agencies

Applications are now open for grants to organizations helping the elderly through the Voelz, Reed, & Mount Foundation

Heritage Fund: The Bartholomew County Community Foundation says that the grant applications are open to nonprofit organizations in Bartholomew, Jackson, Jennings and Decatur counties that serve aging adults. The grants will go to support projects and programs that have a positive impact on the lives of senior citizens and their families and will range from $500 to $1,000 each.

Voelz, Reed, & Mount are attorneys specializing in estate and elder law in Columbus and Central Indiana. The local law firm partnered with Heritage Fund last year to establish a business foundation to give back to the communities where they do business.

The deadline for organizations to apply is April 28th and the awards will be announced on May 15th. You can get more information at
