Foundation: Community Foundation of Southern Indiana

"When you see the kids interacting and them building communitythat's what it is," says Camp Quality Kentuckiana executive director Eddie Bobbitt.

"It's bigger than fishing and pie fights."

The nonprofit is one of 17 organizations in southern Indiana to receive grants from the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana, WDRB reports.

The grants, totaling $63,500, fund programs that give back to communities in the region.

A bulk of the funding came through the Capacity Building Grant, which aims to improve nonprofits' operating capacity.

The Arts Alliance of Southern Indiana received $25,000, and CASA of Floyd Countywhich provides court assistance to abused and neglected youthgot $12,500.

The Community Foundation of Southern Indiana gave a total of $63,500 between the organizations with three separate grant programs, according to a newsletter from the organization.

"This not only helps these groups achieve their goals but also allows us to stay true to our mission and make a real impact in the community," CFSI President Linda Speed said in the newsletter.

Camp Quality Kentuckiana provides summer camps, field trips, and other year-round programming to families at no cost.

"We've made a lot of friends that allow us to do what we do," Bobbitt says.
