Grants and Scholarships
Grants can be the life blood of a community. They provide critical funds for food banks serving people who are currently down on their luck, for libraries and art programs that entertain and educate a city, and for social service programs offering various types of hope and help to individuals. Each year, the Central Alabama Community Foundation and its affiliates (Autauga Area Community Foundation, Elmore County Community Foundation, and Southeast Alabama Community Foundation) distribute millions of dollars in grants that touch almost every aspect of life. Funds administered by CACF support programs, organizations and institutions throughout Central Alabama and across the country.

The Paul Easterling Scholarship Fund was established to honor a long-time coach and district director and to recognize past participants of Dixie Youth League baseball who understand and exhibit good sportsmanship on and off the field. Further, they must be solid students and active in their school and community. Sam Jones, a 2013 graduate of Prattville High School is this year’s recipient. From the honor roll to wrestling, from Beta Club to president of the Technology Association, and from Tornado Relief to active involvement at First Baptist Church, Sam’s activities have run the gamut, but he certainly found time for a 9-year-run in the Dixie Youth League. His teachers and administrators laud him as a person of character and integrity, and his essay reflects a commitment to being a role model for peers and those following behind him.
The cost of education is rising and funds for education can be scarce. To learn more about scholorship opportunities, visit our Scholarships page.
