The deadline for applying for grants from the Pella Community Foundation  is next month. Jim Brandl, President of the Foundation, says the deadline to apply is November 15th. Non-profit groups with a focus on serving the community are the benefactors of these grants. Brandl says this is the 20th Anniversary of the Foundation. They’ve been awarding grants for the past 18 years and during that time, provided about a quarter-million dollars in funding to area non-profits.
