The Wabash Valley Community Foundation has determined broad priorities for awarding its grant funds. Each county has its own individual review process and deadlines. The Foundation's grant process takes advantage of one of the greatest strengths of this three-county partnership - the use of local volunteer leadership to determine the organizations and agencies to be funded within each county

Other grant opportunities through the Wabash Valley Community Foundation include the Youth Grant Committee (for the benefit of Vigo County youth projects/programs) and the Terre Haute Day Nursery (for the benefit of not-for-profit daycare programs).
