Mary Van Zante, President of the Marion County Community Foundation, tells KNIA/KRLS that their deadline for grant requests is tomorrow. Van Zante says they have given out more than ¾ of a million dollars in less than a decade, and they want to make sure that as many deserving organizations and groups apply for their grants, so that they can help as many people as possible. She adds that part of the funds come from gambling revenue that counties without a gambling venue are eligible for, and anyone in the county can apply to receive a grant, as long as it’s postmarked by tomorrow.
