Grant-Making

The Community Foundation of Northwest Mississippi's primary program is making grants. The Foundation seeks to accomplish its mission by providing resources to nonprofit organizations to make positive change in its eleven-county region. For that purpose, it has stimulated the establishment of permanently endowed funds and leveraged them with funds from other sources such as private foundations and government.

Population(s) Served

The second largest program was to improve children's health, primarily by working to reduce childhood obesity and to increase breastfeeding. The work included healthy eating throughout the state's largest farmers market and the statewide sustainable agriculture effort including farm-to-school initiatives. Mothers, especially in low-income areas and with premature or low birth-weight babies, were encouraged and supported in breastfeeding through churches, community meetings, and local media. Newborn babies in NICUs were connected with their mothers for their mutual benefit.

Population(s) Served

The Community Foundation's third-largest program was the Community Digital Scholars to enable 81 schools to teach critical skills that students need to thrive, including personal finance, STEM readiness, and entrepreneurship. The online aspect engaged students, ensured consistent quality and enables accountability. For instance, student's knowledge of personal finance increased 91 percent.
