Tyson Fund accepting applications
Deadline is July 31.

Trustees of the Tyson Versailles Fund are accepting grant applications for the 2015 awards, which will be presented at the annual meeting on Monday, September 14, 2015. James “Uncle Jim” Tyson established his private foundation in 1930 to promote the religious, social, literary, and educational advancement for the residents of Versailles. Uncle Jim’s financial gift initially funded construction of the Tyson Temple, Tyson Library, the Versailles Elementary-High School, maintenance to Cliff Hill Cemetery, and feasts at the Ripley County Infirmary. Over the years, his gift to his community has provided funding for several projects including fire trucks and equipment for the Versailles Volunteer Fire Department, upgrades and facilities for the Versailles Water Works, sidewalks through the town, funding for various projects at Versailles and South Ripley School Corporation, the town of Versailles in general for various projects and programs, and grants made to qualified non-profit organizations in the area. Over the past 10 years, Tyson Fund has contributed over $5 million to the Versailles community.

The annual meeting is on September 14 (Sundays excepted) each year in celebration and remembrance of Uncle Jim’s birthday. This year the meeting will be held at the Tyson United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall at 7 p.m. Grant applications may be picked up at the Tyson Library or the Tyson United Methodist Church Office.

For additional details or questions please contact any Trustee. Trustees are Natalie Gilpin - President, Bob Meyer - Secretary, Connie Morris - Treasurer, Mike Richmond, Kenny Sheets, Susan Underwood, Jim Leveille, Bill Bradford and Jeff Logman. You may also contact the Tyson United Methodist church office at 812.689.6976 to direct you to a board member for information.
Application deadline is no later than 5 p.m. on July 31.
