Thank you for your interest in The Brave Heart Foundation! Before submitting your application, please be sure to review the following key information about the types of projects we fund, award availability, applications requirements, and more.

Every year, we assist and support programs dedicated to serving underserved populations, helping to make a difference in our community. 

We primarily fund organizations and projects in Indiana with an emphasis on three key areas:

  • Education
  • Health & Wellness
  • Grass Roots Community Action Programs and Services

Funding Cycle

Grants are awarded in two cycles: Spring and Fall. Application and request due dates remain the same each year:

  • April 1 for Spring funding
  • October 1 for Fall funding


Any applications received after the deadline will be held until the next funding cycle.

Grant Awards

Grant awards may range up to $5,000. Agencies with an annual budget more than $1-2 Million are not typically funded. Our mission is to help as many programs as possible. Requests above $5,000 that do not have previous approval for submission will NOT be considered.

Our Foundation requests that our funding go towards program purposes and not for solicitations or fundraising purposes.


Requests for larger funding are only accepted from those agencies who have previously received a grant from The Brave Heart Foundation and who provided the required Impact Report following receipt of grant. Requests should use the primary grant application and should only be submitted one time per year.


All grants should be submitted through the online application form, helping us to reduce paperwork and remain green. Though digital, we request you be mindful of application length, striving to keep it at the equivalent of approximately 3 pages.
