Grants to Washington County, Kansas nonprofit organizations and educational, governmental, and religious institutions to improve the local quality of life. Focus areas include health and human services, education, environment, the arts (visual and performance), and spirituality. Applications are open to a variety of issues and target populations.

The Foundation offers the following types of support:

- Project or program support: Supports specific projects or programs that are often linked to an organization’s service
- Operating or general support: Supports the work of an organization from administrative expenses to program costs
- Endowments: A permanent gift to be invested to provide income for continued support for an organization

- Capacity building: Activities that strengthen an organization and help it fulfill its mission either through staff and equipment, new building or renovation, publications, training and convening.
- Capital: Supports construction or renovation of a facility

Although the Board will consider a request for funding that is the same or similar to a previously approved grant, preference will be given to new and innovative grant requests. The Foundation will also consider if the program, project or organization for which funding is requested is sustainable.
